Ascent Trip ReportOn Saturday around 7 pm I rolled in to the area and began scoping Lilienthal Mountain. I looked for the property owners to no avail. I left nice notes pleading for permission and a speedy return phone call on two driveways, and thought I could make a fast go at it from the Bozeel Rd approach the following day if needed. I camped at Fort Spokane and enjoyed the pines, the confluence of the Spokane and Columbia rivers, and the historic sites at Fort Spokane the following morning. I was ecstatic to receive a phone call from the owner Jerry that morning, stating it's okay if I want to hike to the top, but don't take a vehicle because there are cows.
Off I went. I parked at Bozeel Road anyway and started uphill roughly following previous GPS tracks from the south side. After a few barbed wire fences, I converged with the jeep road and followed it to the summit. I enjoyed the views but regrettably left my snacks in the car. Lincoln County is beautiful. Down I went, dodging one rattlesnake and having so much fun running downhill and enjoying the views I nearly ran right in to a barbed fence straight across the road. Luckily unhurt, I descended more slowly back to the snack mobile. I was so happy to have permission to hike on this beautiful property to claim my 21st WA Co HP.
