Ascent Trip Report

This is more of a hill than a mountain.

The southwest half has been clear-cut, so access to the summit just means bushwacking over the clear-cut brush. From the summit, there's a nice view of Bear and Scoular Mountains to the southeast.

To reach the mountain, turn south onto Rte 785 in Fredericton Junction and from the railway tracks, drive 23 km. Turn right (W) onto the logging road marked with the red sign, "Emergency Point 4460". Continue 2.9 km, and turn right (N) onto a logging road. Turn left onto one of the two cul-de-sac logging roads at 400 m or 700 m. Both bring you to the base of the mountain and are good trailheads.
