Ascent Trip Report

Spodue Mountain has a road all the way to the summit where there is a fire lookout and a couple comm towers. To get there from Hwy 140 in Beatty, turn north on Godowa Springs Road in Beatty and zero your odometer. At 5.1 miles the pavement ends and at 12.6 miles turn right on FR 3461 where a sign indicates the Spodue Lookout is 5.0 miles up the road. Drive up the road 3.2 miles and stay right. At 3.3 miles there is a gate that was locked when I arrived because fire season was over. This lookout is usually manned during the summer fire season. I hiked up the road to the summit where there are nice views.
