Ascent Trip ReportBaltic Peak is approached from Bonetti Rd off the Mormon Emigrant Trail 3.4 miles from Jenkinson Lake. Although I made some wrong turns before reaching my destination, there is a good dirt road involving several intersections that leads to Baltic Peak and the abandoned L.O. There are a couple of support buildings on a rather grubby site with spent ammo shells and refuse on the ground. Trees now grow as high as the L.O.; therefore no views. A posted sign says that a Sacramento 4x4 group is trying to restore Baltic Peak L.O.
