Ascent Trip Report

This route follows an old, overgrown road and use trails to the top of Silver Mountain..

The lower portion of the firebreak is very steep but easy to follow. For a less steep trip up or down, you can bypass the lower firebreak by following the road, which is very overgrown but passable. There is a large washout in the road but there is a well-trod detour that leads you up and around the washout.

This hike is best done in the morning and not in the summer as there is very little shade. When descending from the summit, make sure you take the south ridge down. It is more difficult to see than the east ridge.
