Ascent Trip Report

Drove my narrow wheelbase 4wd to starting point
of Ken Jones GPS track. This is one nasty jeep road,
with some tricky washouts to cross and straddle.
If you feel like punishing your vehicle even more
you can drive the mapped track to the saddle just
north of 8262. There are some steep and loose sections
on this jeep trail. Once at the saddle you are well set
up to snag bonus summit 8262 enroute to
Independence Benchmark.
