Ascent Trip Report

We followed the driving directions for DPS Route B except that you make the sharp right turn at 1.3 miles, not the 1.6 miles mentioned in the guide, and the fork at 2.4 miles no longer exist because the road that branched right has been blocked off by a sign that states "Wilderness Restoration-Foot and Horse Traffic Only". We were able to drive to the 4 wheel drive trailhead per the DPS Guide, but next time I would park on the main road about 1500' west of the 4 wheel drive turnoff, then hike north to a 5,200' saddle to reach the Martin Crossing sign mentioned in the DPS guide. The route from Martin Crossing is pretty straight forward following Route B of DPS Guide. The road is not that bad to the trailhead, but a decent, high clearance 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must on the drive to the trailhead; also, the mileage from the paved road is 10.0.
