Ascent Trip Report

Public. I approached from Fortnine. Took the Meadow Creek Road to McKenzie to 855 to 7174. Then 3646 to 1900. Then from the headwaters of the West Fork Creek, take 494 up to the saddle. These are pretty good roads, I think that you could handle it in an Outback no problem. Parked at the 6375'. From there, you just take the trail to the summit. There's a quick fork and either direction works as I took one each way and it merges back up within like a 1/10th of a mile. Trail goes through forest and then opens out onto the ridge with meadows. Continues past the summit and curls around. It's a trail but GPS track is attached. Saw one other party. The summit is crowned with an older style lookout that is pretty weathered but still ok. Nice views. Pleasant hike, I recommend it. No grizzlies which is always nice as I had a severe case of bearanoia.
