Ascent Trip ReportMisoriented before locating a bike trail, but there are many, some maintained/well-marked, some not. I followed whichever leading to higher ground but bypassing another 4840 at north.
Once I reached an assumed high point (the southernmost point of my track that coincident with the mark on ArcGIS), I walked around to approach pb point or the bullseye of the BM triangle. Fortunately, I found the BM which is closer to pb point.
On descent, I started with a bike trail, then switched to a dirt road once it is in view. Light bushwhacking to connect the dirt road back to the lodge parking.
