Ascent Trip Report

There is a watchtower at the highpoint, which is fenced off. You can drive to it. But I highly recommend hiking into or through the wilderness area to reach the highpoint, as there are some very nice waterfalls (assuming some rain prior) and camping areas within the wilderness area itself.
