Ascent Trip Report

The road was good (passenger car capable) to the gate for Francis Peak. From there, a rough dirt road goes around to the right and continues to a small but adequate turnout where I parked. Please note- the road continues a bit further to a dead-end with no room to turn around.

The (Great Western) trail was decent to the saddle before the summit, where a cairned use trail continues to the summit.
