Ascent Trip Report

A drive up to Area #1 and a .7 mile, 20 minutes RT to Area #2.

Gustav Sexauer TR is good, I'm adding detail to the driving part of his report. One must read Gustav.

From the JCT 77/51 in Hurley I drove south on 51 for approx. 15 miles to Island Lake Road on the right (at the Pine Lake area). I zeroed my odo.

00.0M .. left #51 northwest on Island Lake Road.
00.4M .. sharp left on South Island Road
06.2M .. T-JCT turn left (west) on Island Lake Road
08.7M .. turn left (south) on Gerry Road
11.5M .. 4-way JCT stayed straight on Chippewa Fire Lane (right here leads to Island Lake)
13.0M .. stayed right on Chippewa Fire Lane
13.5M .. turned right (westerly) on Bend Road ( a lesser road with some pot holes, I had no problems, could be worse when wet).
14.5M .. obscure fork stayed right, road climbs.
14.7M .. summit with old trailer home, parked here just past an open gate.

Nothing to add to Gustav's summit description, except to say that the woods at Area #2 are very open and its summit is capped with a hunter's cabin.
