Ascent Trip Report

The well-maintained Big Bald Rock Trail is apparently not aligned with the dashed line on the topo map. It follows a small gulch north to the E ridge to a saddle.
The benchmark is not at the highest point.
I did not carefully look for the trail on descent, eventually followed the E ridge, with minor bushwhacking, all off-trail until I see my car in the parking lot.

(starting from February 24 at 10:36am)
