Ascent Trip Report

Followed the driving directions from the HPS Guide, but decided to park earlier at the fork leading to Grand View Mine. This part of the road would be passable for a 2WD high clearance vehicle.
From my parking spot, hiked up the road to the 4WD parking spot noted in the HPS guide, dropping into the creek and following that up to the saddle to the west of the summit. Then followed the use trail to the top, signing the register and then heading down on the same route.
