Ascent Trip Report

After approx 17 miles on the Cherry Lake Rd from the town of Tuolumne, take the unsigned turnoff (FSR 2N11) for Duckwall Mountain. At a 4-way intersection (3.1 miles), take another unsigned road for 0.8 mile to a locked gate. From here it is about a 1-mile walk along the road to Duckwall Mountain and the unstaffed L.O. The steel-framed structure with six flights of stairs is among the tallest L.O.s I've visited. The neighboring cinder-block house was a mess inside, although there were no signs of actual vandalism. Good visibility today, but no memorable ground-level views.
