Ascent Trip Report

I approached Garfield Hills from the town of Mina on Hwy 95. In Mina, locate 12th St and zero your odometer. As you leave town the road turns to gravel but it is wide and smooth. At .9 take the right for, at 7.1 turn right, at 9.5 turn off the good road onto a much lesser road to the right and then at 9.7 take the left fork. At 12.2 pass a solar panel on the right, at 13.3 reach the upper end of the Bataan Mine that has some fallen down buildings and equipment, and at 15.1 reach a saddle at about 7660 ft and park.

Hike southeast up and down over 3 rounded hills on the way to the summit. Nice views from the summit and easy hiking.
