Ascent Trip Report

Private Timberland, generally but not always OK to visit. At junction at 2100, you can go left and walk past gate and the road will go nearly to top but you will pass postings and houses. Or go right and walk past gate work in direction of peak. You'll have a couple hundred feet of modest brush to ascend to get to the upper road network so pick your poison. Lame peakbaggers only type mtn.
