Ascent Trip ReportPeak 3855 is mostly a drive up with a little bushwhack on the summit to find the high point. I approached from Hwy 96 going west. Zero your odometer at the 96/263 intersection and go west on Hwy 96. At 27.7 miles turn right cross a brown bridge to a single lane paved road. At 30.0 the pavement ends and FR 12 is on your right, continue straight to 30.4 adn then turn left on 46N60. At 30.6 there is an open gate, and at 34.2 reach a saddle on a ridge and then turn left and then take the left fork. At 34.5 take another left fork onto 46N31, at 36.6 turn left, at 37.3 reach a big wide final switchback where you should park and hike up the road. The road dead ends with no turn around and I had to back down the road.
There are 2 large aluminum structures on the summit that look like big movie screens. No electronics or buildings. I don't know what these structures were built for. The high point is back in some brush. No good views from the summit.
