Ascent Trip Report

Platte Mountain L.O. is approached via CA 32 and is located just north of Forest Ranch and within half a mile beyond a Calfire station. Although only a few hundred feet west of the highway, the unstaffed Calfire L.O. is not easily seen among the tall trees around it; I had to look carefully to find it. And it is one of the tall towers.
