Ascent Trip Report

I parked at the lower parking area around 9000 feet and hiked the marked trail to the upper parking lot and road. From there I hiked to the gated no trespassing sign. The large fence and barbed wire prevented me from reaching the high point and I followed a trail to the left of the road approximately 0.25 miles to a beautiful outlook (but also not the highpoint). I then returned the way I came and found a small spur trail leading off to the woods across from the upper parking lot. This led to a campsite and fire ring and soon petered out at a series of blowdowns. I continued following herdpaths and bushwhacking to the benchmark and recognized summit. Signed the register.
