Ascent Trip Report

After a very pleasant hike at Twin Lakes, Jim Creek, exploring the old growth forest, we had originally intended to head up Ebey Hill. Becca identified many native wildflowers on the Twin Lakes old growth hike including Trillium, and her favorite, bleeding heart, a good representation of how she spent last night until 4 AM at work in heart surgery. My satellite view research lead to a possible option up Ebey Mountain Road. We avoided the initial private property signs and three or four houses, just to arrive at another set of signs with a house definitely beyond. So, we really did not attempt Ebey. I’ll be back with a MTB solo.

We set our sights on our back up plan that Becca found, a short stroll up this hill! The main focus of the day was the old growth hike at Jim creek, but we could not let a bluebird day like this go by without a peak/bump thanks to Becca’s efforts to find a back up plan.

There is not very good parking along Monroe Camp Road. We just pulled off to the side about 50 feet west of the beginning of the gravel road to the summit. This land is all part of Lake Roesiger County Park, or state land. There is a sign at the gated entrance to the gravel road indicating that non-motorized recreational use is permitted. You take old logging roads to within a few hundred horizontal feet of the summit. Then, you make your way through unpleasant clear-cut slash to the actual high point. Overall, a short and pleasant way to spend an hour on a bluebird day after a fun hike through beautiful old growth forest at Jim Creek.
