Ascent Trip Report

I made the mistake of trying to access Buck Hill from the residential area to the west, so I could avoid the possibility of being turned down if I asked permission at the ski facility, which exists there. I found posted signs at the homes I needed to hike beside to the west, so I drove to the large parking lot in front of the ski center and surprisingly found the door unlocked, even though it was the middle of the summer. I didn't find anyone, however, so I started my climb and reached the summit at the top of a ski lift after covering a quarter mile in 8 minutes during an elevation gain of nearly 200 feet. At the summit you will have a good view of Eau Claire to the east and a big lake to the south.
