Ascent Trip Report

Drove north on paved FR36 to just past milepost 33 where we turned sharp right onto FR3500. Followed this to just short of milepost 4, where we spied the sign for Elk Ridge Trail No 107. Followed this clear and well-maintained trail to just below the summit. Highest point was not inside highest contour on map, if my GPS was correct. Found John Vitz register in summit cairn.

Passenger sedan could drive to trailhead as of time of our visit.
