Ascent Trip Report

drove as far in as we could on the main road, tho we could have braved the snow-covered sideroad that would have taken us much closer to the peak if we'd know it, and went up to see the lookout from just below the highest platform, which was locked; then followed GPS reading to a point about 200m from the high point, and circled around to find it and the paved trail leading to the nearby parking lot
