Ascent Trip Report

I accessed Buckskin Mountain from Whitehorse Ranch Road. About 14 miles from the Fields/Denio Road I turned left just before a cattle guard and where some power lines cross the road. I followed this dirt road through 2 gates as it parallels the power lines for about 4.1 miles. I reached a "Y" in the road and parked. The left fork is gated in about 200 yards and there is no where to park near the gate. I hiked the road up to near the summit. The road goes to a microwave sight on the west side of the summit area. The highest point is off to the east about 0.2 mile. I visited the highest point of both hills and I think the east summit is about 10 ft higher than the western one near the microwave tower. Great views.
