Ascent Trip Report

The house where you ask for permission is actually the caretaker's house. The property is owned by a trucking company big whig, but his house is apparently up on the mountain somewhere that I did not encounter. The hike up was quite enjoyable in spite of being mostly on a dirt road. Views from the summit are excellent as other reports have indicated. On the hike down, I encountered 2 pickup trucks that were bear hunting around 3,900' elevation. They kindly offered me a ride back to my car, saving some time and downhill road walking. Pics
