Ascent Trip Reporti drove in on summitpost route 1, and as connor noted last summer, this brush is closing in on this road. it still goes... but i did have to get out and use the bow saw on a tree at one point. i could have continued driving up to the summit, but i decided to get out and do the last mile on foot.
i was leaving the peak headed north, and there isn't much online about that direction. i recorded my drive out. i think this alternate path down from the summit is good for north or south approaches to the mountain, and good for pretty much any medium clearance vehicle.
essentially you want to get yourself on beckwourth-taylorsville road (plumas CR-113), and then find the bottom of the attached track (39.9621, -120.6695), then drive uphill to the fork below the summit (and decide if you want to hike or drive the last mile).
i actually left to the north on beckwourth-taylorsville road, where it was 11 miles until i reached pavement (40.0380, -120.7492, the intersection with ward creek road). i didn't drive the southern portion, but i'm assuming that since it's a county road that it's in similarly great condition as the segment i drove.
