Ascent Trip ReportI accessed Peak 3140 from I-5 in Wolf Creek. Find Speaker Road at the intersection of the Frontage Road, the Wolf Creek I-5 Exit Southbound, and the Northbound I-5 entrance. Zero your odometer and go east on Speaker Road. Go 1.4 miles and turn right on Board Tree Road, BLM 33-5-7, at 3.6 miles at a switchback, turn right onto a lesser road. At 4.8 miles this lesser road ends. I parked at about 2,520 ft. I hiked up the steep brushy slope to the ridge and then followed an old logging road along the ridge to the summit. The summit ridge has large old growth trees and is pretty to walk through. It may have been easier to hike up from the switchback on BLM 33-5-7 than to bushwhack up the north slope. No views.
