Ascent Trip Report

There are two trails that go very near this summit. One was open ( the one most east) but the loop back was closed off (the one on the west). The summit is very close to the trail. On the way back it was much longer coming the way I came so I looped around to the north with some good views but it was mushy snow on the trail and no bike of foot tracks. I saw plenty of mule deer. I got a phone call and answered and before I knew it I was back at the gate. Odd that they had it closed coming in that way but if you come the eastern trail and keep following it around you end up at the gate > if they wanted to completely close the area off they would gate both trails so a bit confusing but if you stay on the trail it appears to be open as they have millions of signs along the trail telling you where not to go off trail but allowing people to hike following the eastern trail
