Ascent Trip Report

Hiked into Palisade Rocks and returned to truck, then followed the old road from parking up to the lookout. The road dies out at the base of a cliff upon which the lookout sits, but a small use trail continues up the side of the rock pile for a short and easy class 2 scramble to the summit.

The lookout is unmanned but standing. I took a couple of steps up the stairs, but it seemed too rotten for me continue safely (and I had my two dogs trying to follow me).

GPX includes the hike into Palisade Rocks - the hike up to the lookout is only ~1/4 mile.
