Ascent Trip Report

Salmon River Road is now a nice hard crushed stone surface right to gate and parking. I went along the woods road "blocked with a cable" that Michael S. and Ben L. suggest in previous reports to further along beyond "Children at Play" sign to an Air Force property sign suggesting lead mining dangers to begin my bushwacking through mostly open woods crossing over a beaver dam to get past pond and wet areas. Orange surveyor's tape hanging summit tree, also in woods at a water crossing.
