Ascent Trip Report

I hiked Mica after hiking Jumbo earlier in the day. The access road I used turned into an ATV trail and was a little rough and brushy by the time I parked. This peak is a long way from pavement and I was glad to have a good map and waypoints at key intersections. One could easily get lost in this area because there are lots of roads and trails used by OHV's.

The hiking route took me up a wash and then onto a grassy/rocky ridgeline. It was a steep route, but it had good footing and the brush and boulders were easy to avoid. Great views
