|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||3698 ft / 1127 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI parked at the saddle between Timber Mountains and Peak 3682. At this saddle 2 roads head toward Peak 3692. The one to the right is gated and the one to the left is bermed. I took the right one with the gate. I walked the road all the way around Peak 3682 to the 3682/3698 saddle and then followed the road up to the high point of 3692. This area has been logged and the road is good. It is a short scramble up the road cut to the high point. Some views from the summit.
I thne returned to the 3682/3698 saddle and took a lesser road that headed southeast towards Peak 3682. This soon deteriorated into a dirt bike trail. I took a couple left turns at forks because it just seemed like the left forks were going toward the summit of Peak 3682. The dirt bike trail finally got right on the the west ridge of 3682 and went right over the high point. I then continued east from the high point and the dirt bike trail quickly openned up to a regular forest road. There were lots of forks in the road and I think I took a right, left, left, straight, left, and right turns as I came down the east ridge of 3682. It dumped me out at the bermed road next to my truck. A GPS is handy on this forested peak to keep your directions straight. All the mileage for both of these peaks is included on Peak 3698.
