Ascent Trip Report

For the drive to the TH - do not continue towards Castle Dome Mine Museum. They will not allow folks to pass through their property or the locked gates. Instead, take McPherson Pass to bypass this area to rejoin Castle Dome Mine Road and continue onto the TH. The road gets rough and sandy in some places, minor inconveniences for a Jeep but we also saw that a Subie made it.

The turn to McPherson Pass is roughly 2.1 miles from the Museum off Castle Dome Mine Road. Coordinates for the turn-off is 33.02983, -114.20242. I could not see any evidence of this road on a map/satellite view but it is there and led us back on track for a wonderful hike.
