Ascent Trip Report

Parked on radio tower maintenance road at around elevation 600 and hiked down to intersection of a private drive and the tower road at elevation 560. Hiked up easy graded road pass many signed private drives until final tower access gate. The gate is signed but it is loosely gated with an obvious intention to prevent motor vehicles from continuing but an easy step over for a hiker. Private property along the sides telling hunters to not go in and shoot wildlife. A short distance to top. Jogged back down.
