Ascent Trip Report

Parked near the Medoc Lookout Tower on Medoc Mountain Road. Walked around the locked gate and continued on the gravel road thru mostly level forested terrain to the high point about 3/4 miles from the lockout tower. There are signs describing trees, wildlife, and plants at the summit clearing as well as a couple benches.

A pleasant stroll. No views. First flight of stairs up the tower is missing. There is a small cemetery a couple hundred yards down the road from the tower on the left where a trail leaves the road to descend to the creek. Vinson is the common name on the headstones.
