Ascent Trip ReportGmaps took me up the Eric Noel route, except that it wanted me to take the gravel Circle Rd shortcut from paved WA 231 to paved Little Falls Rd. A bit faster to stay a little longer on 231 and take the left onto Little Falls Rd. directly. The dirt road to the summit had one giant rut complex that worried me a little, but my Chevy Cruze made it without bottoming out. Having a porta-potty under the LO was pretty fancy. The LO platform/cab was locked/unoccupied. Gorgeous drive, especially crossing the Spokane River at the base of the mountain. Wonderful views from the stairs of the LO: a nifty intro to the Washington LO list!
