Ascent Trip Report

Big Hill is in the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation off CA 96. A few miles beyond the community of Hoopa the Big Hill Lookout Rd heads east for 5.7 miles to an unsigned locked gate on the left. From here a good dirt road provides a pleasant walk which climbs gradually 100-200' through the forest to arrive in 1+ miles at the open summit area of Big Hill and its L.O. Painted white and with a ground-level cab,it is staffed only as fire conditions require.
