Ascent Trip Report

I approached Wagontire from the Glass Buttes area. This is a long and tedious drive. I hit several dead ends at private property but finally found a place just south of the summit from where I could hike to the top. As far as I know I did not cross any private property. There is a nice fire lookout on the summit that looks like you could live in. It took me over 2 hours to drive back to Hwy 20 using the back roads. Driving in and out I had to open and close 16 cattle gates. Very tedious indeed...
