Ascent Trip Report

I approached Cultus Mtn from the Cascade Lakes Hwy and the signed Cultus Lake Campground. Zero your ofometer and go 0.8 mile towards the campground, then turn left towards Little Cultus Lake on road 4630. At 2.5 miles go straight, at 3.2 miles turn right, pass a cmping area on your left, and at 4.4 miles turn right on FR 644. I drove beyond the first big switchback at 5.2 miles about 3/4 of a mile where the road was blocked by a down tree. I had to back down tot he switchback and hike from there.

I hiked up the road to the top where there used to be a fire lookout. Great views north and south of the Cascades.
