Ascent Trip Report

Exited I-5 at Templin Highway and drove north on the east side of I-5 on Golden State Highway to its end at a locked gate. Parked and hiked north on the highway until reaching a jeep road that ascended from the left side of the road. Followed that jeep road which degraded to a foot trail and eventually reached the summit and lookout. Since it was a weekend, the lookout was staffed with a volunteer that appreciated any visitors. After eating lunch just north of the lookout with a view of Pyramid Lake, descended along the same trail to the car.
