Ascent Trip Report

This is a nice little peak. Not much to say. A forest has recently burned up the area but it is still OK. Could be hot but not on this day. Plaque at the top but the bust of Bolivar is gone. Nothing special but a pleasant little hike. The road to the TH is paved but it still takes a long long time to get to the TH. I came from the Bear Camp Road, followed the Rogue N to Grave Creek bridge, took the exposed road up to the main road. Then took the main road down to Cow Creek and then clockwise around to Riddle. All of which adds up to like 80 miles of driving at slow speeds. Good roads but time consuming.
