Ascent Trip Report

Coos Mountain is a long way off the beaten path. Fortunately there is a maze of logging roads to get lost on to get close. I left Hwy 42 in Tenmile and took roads that followed Burnt Ridge and Middle Creek until I was directly south of Coos Mountain. At this point I took seldom used BLM 27-10-4.1 north until it ended. I parked and hiked up an old bermed abandoned logging road for less than a half mile where it intersected with a nice new gravel logging road at the foot of a recent clear cut. I followed this road up to an intersection with a couple more good roads and turned left towards the peak. There was an active logging operation on the east side of Coos Mountain, but since they were working more northeast of the peak, I hiked up the road until I was close to the summit and then left the road and walked up to the high point that was in an unlogged area and it was covered with a nice forest canopy. No real views from the summit because of the trees.
