Ascent Trip Report

I approached Peak 5520 from the Mt Ashland Road. Take the Mt Ashland exit from I-5 and start up the road towards Mt Ashland. A couple miles up the road is a turn-off on your left for Colestin. Zero your odometer and take his turn-off. Go 2.4 miles and turn right on FR 40S06. At 0.9 miles go straight at the Penny Pines area, at 5.3 miles take the left fork, at 7.9 miles turn right on FR 40S02. Drive up this road about 0.5 mile to a saddle and park.

I hiked south up through the forest to the high point. Limited views because of the forest.
