Ascent Trip Report

What to do with a torn heel tendon? Find Drive-ups. Hike short distances. Heal and Persist!!!

A pure drive up. From FH7 (Forest Highway 7), drive past the Mendocino Pass area, take the M4 route to the summit area. The road is currently passable by a 2wd vehicle. The Fire Lookout is newly painted and manned. The Fire lookout keeper was well informed and fun to talk with. There is a USFS standard restroom at the summit. Great views. From here, I drove down to Covelo. This road was in much better condition than the road from the east side off of Route 5, that used Hwy 162 to Elk Creek, then to FH7. It is a bit of a drive to HWY 101 but beautiful and worthwhile country along the Eel River.

A nice "Climb".
