Ascent Trip ReportFrom CA 168 near Prather turn SE on Lodge Rd and proceed to Black Mountain Lane, the road to the top of Black Mountain and the unstaffed Calfire L.O. I soon encountered what appeared to be a heavily locked gate, but which, much to my pleasant surprise, was unlocked. (It is usually locked.) I continued my drive up the narrow dirt road to the L.O. Meeting several people, I learned that they were there on matters to do with the communication facilities. They had left the gate below closed but unlocked; I had them to thank for enabling me to drive up Black Mountain. It is 4.4 miles from the Lodge Rd/CA 168 intersection to the top of Black Mountain; 2.8 miles from the gate to the top.
