Ascent Trip Report

This is a drive up from Hwy 97. Take the signed Walker Mtn LO turn off (FR 94) and in a couple miles turn north FR 9402. FR 9402 is ok until the last .5 mile and then it is a little rocky. If it is wet it may be problematic. I drove right up next to the old fire lookout. It is boarded up and hasn't been used in quite a while. There are several comm buildings and micorwave towers on the summit also. The benchmark is located directly under the lookout and one of the witness markers is on one of the foundation cement blocks. If you look south from the fire lookout beyond the garage, you will notice an old rock cabin that is nice to visit. Also there is a rock outcropping near the cabin on the ridge that is higher than the benchmark under the fire lookout. Nice views.
