Ascent Trip Report

From Amstrong pass TH off USFS road 51 "Willow Creek Road", just east of Luther Pass, Hwy 89

Willow ck road is barely passible for passenger cars at the entrance, but is easily passable thereafter.

Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) is excellent path, well graded,demarked and maintained. Spur to Freel is light maintained trail, sandy scree nearer summit. Not as loose as feared.
