Ascent Trip Report

Parked on Elephant Mountain Rd at the trailhead (end of the road). The road is a little rough, but Jason's pickup made it without any problems.

12:35 - The 3 of us headed up the trail (flagged). Jason has been up multiple times, so he knew the route well. About 1/2 way up, many people head left on an old skidder road and then have a hard time bushwhacking. Stay right. You will eventually come to a recently logged area which you can easily find your way through. There is some flagging marking the way as well.
13:10 - Summit. We grabbed some pictures (with the elephant trunk), food and drink before heading back down (~15 mins)
14:05 - Back at the car.
