Ascent Trip ReportI accessed London Peak from I-5, exit 76 in Wolf Creek. Go west and at the stop sign go straight to the road signed as a "Dead End" and also signed for London Peak Trail. Zero your odometer and go 2.1 miles and take the right fork onto BLM 33-6-26, at 3.1 miles turn right, and at 4.7 miles reach the ridgeline and the London Mountain Trail. Park but don't take the London Mountain Trail. The high point is in the opposite direction. The road used to go south along the ridge, but it has been barricaded. Hike around the right side of the barricade, go another 50 ft and then follow the red and blue flagged route up the ridge. This route is kind of brushy in spots but it goes to the high point. No views because of the forest.
