Ascent Trip Report

We landed our private boat Cypress Head. Check the DNR website for a map of current roads and trails that do not appear on the topo. You wanted to be working towards the Bradberry Lake trail which will get you fairly close to the peak. From there it was a nice short hike to a short easy off-trail finish to the summit. Flattish and lacking in views, the summit is nothing special. We hiked out via a different route towards Eagle Harbor where we met our boat. This is a nice winter type trip if you can arrange for a boat.
