Ascent Trip Report

I accessed the TH from Richfield as is often recommended. The drive was 18 miles on a occasionally narrow and somewhat rocky road. Some say a carefully driven car could make it, but I wouldn't recommend it due to sharp rocks and the risk of flat tires. The hike itself was easy of course, although I initially took the wrong ridge down, having been disoriented by the road in the distance - enticing me to hike down the wrong drainage. Good reminder to check bearings when beginning a descent. I returned to pavement by driving the much rougher jeep road down to Fillmore. Doable with 4 wheel drive but certainly not possible for a car to make that drive. I was in a 4wd truck and no trouble. The drive is 8 miles shorter than the Richfield route and if you have a suitable vehicle I'd enter from Fillmore.
