Ascent Trip Report

Finally, an opportunity to bag a county HP and make a decent hike out of it! I drove in as others have described and parked along the road #517 and then hiked down the very overgrown jeep trail labeled as USGS WO46I to find a worthy starting point. The roadway abruptly ends but I found a pink taped cut line that headed further downhill towards a ravine. Perfect...I can't get lost. I hiked down to the bottom of the small drainage and called it my TH and then hiked back up and to route 517 and then up to the gate that others described. You can hike around the gate and soon there is another larger trail (horse trail) and the HP is right there close by. Easy and a nice hike if you chose to not make it a simple drive up.
