Ascent Trip Report

There is now a small sign on the PCT that reads "Butte County High Point, 0.2 mi", and a short spur trail that leads directly over Peak 7160 to the county high point. Another sign there reads "Butte County High point", next to a summit register in an ammo box. Both signs look very new.

This is the first CA county high point I've seen that's explicitly marked with a dedicated sign. Highpointing must be coming up in the world!
