Ascent Trip Report

I approached Peak 4180 from the small settlement of Colestin. There is a road that roughly parallels the railroad tracks between Hilt and Colestin and the road to Mt Ashland. I came up the road from Hilt, but you can come down the road from the Mt Ashland Road. At about milepost 2.5 turn west on FR 40S06. Stay on this main road for 3.4 miles where the road makes a bit of a hairpin turn. I parked here. The topo shows a road going south from this location, but it has been disabled so that you can't drive on the road. This trailhead is actually higher elevation than the summit of Peak 4180. You have to hike down to a saddle then back up. I hiked the road south. Actually it kind of goes east first before going south. There are forks in the road, so I included my GPS track to show the turns I took. The last slope to the summit was cross country through a thinned forest until I found another old road that took me to the summit. I was surprized to find a nice Yurt on the summit. It doesn't look like anyone had lived in it for several months. The Yurt is right on the summit so I was thankful that I could get this summit without disturbing anyone. There are some nice views in places.
