Ascent Trip Report

Followed trail to top. Drive FR 22 to approximately 4400' elevation. A sign on the right-hand side of the road indicates the Klickitat Trail No 7. There is parking for several vehicles by this sign. Across the road the trail up Elk Peak climbs the bank and heads up hill. See the GPS track for the general routing of the trail, which is not shown correctly on any map I've seen.

Thanks to Bob Bolton for beta on this one.
