Ascent Trip Report

Followed trails up from the north side in gathering darkness. Trail that goes over high point is drive-able with 4WD, but gated off over a mile away. Followed ridge trail south under headlamp and eventually came out on Buck Hill Rd. The trailhead is not in the same spot as shown on the topo map anymore - see close-up satellite images for a better idea of where to park. Jogged the 3.5 miles back to my car in the dark in 29 minutes.
