Ascent Trip Report

When I reached the overgrown access road NW of the Douglas County highpoint, I was only .14 air miles from the summit. I reached the summit in 10 minutes after hiking .23 miles where I found a benchmark, but the tower was removed with only the support anchors remaining. I used a different descent route when I found another road which took me back to the main road only 175 yards away from my car. This access road can be found at 46.36761 N 92.12589 W and the summit is only .22 air miles from here. It's a quick, easy highpoint to grab if you use this route.
