Ascent Trip Report

There is a Fire Lookout on the summit of Horsefly Mountain and it is a drive up. From the town of Bly on Hwy 140 turn south on Elder Rd in Bly and zero your odometer. At 1.1 miles the pavement ends and turn left on FR 3752. At 2.7 miles go stright, at 3.8 miles cross through shallow Pole Creek, at 8.5 miles take the right fork onto FR 3814, and at 10.9 miles take the left fork onto FR 105, at 12.0 miles go right, at 13.5 miles turn right onto FR 011, at 14.6 miles pass through an open gate, and at 14.7 miles reach the summit and the fire lookout. A nice guy was working the forest lookout for his last day of the year. He gave me a tour of the fire lookout. Great views including Mt Shasta to the southwest.
