Ascent of Peak 3260 on 2010-12-15
|Date:||Wednesday, December 15, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||3260 ft / 993 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI approached Peak 3260 from Gold Hill and Old Stage Road on the west side of I-5. I turned west on Galls Creek Road and followed this good road 5.4 miles to BLM 37-3-9.2 which is gated and locked. This BLM road is not shown on most topo maps, but it is a good road and provides a good route to Peak 3260. This trailhead is in the Timber Mtn OHV area. I hiked up the road past the gate and followed it to within .25 mile of the summit where I took a lesser used road that forked right towards the summit. There are no views from the summit, but there is a private well and water storage tank on the top. There may be views along the route up to the summit, but it was foggy today with limited visibility.
