Ascent Trip ReportAbout 1/2 mile S of Pine Grove, turn off CA 88 on the paved Mt. Zion Rd, which climbs past scattered homes in less than 1 mile to the boundary of the Mt. Zion State Forest Preserve. A short uphill walk from the gated entry stands Calfire's Mt. Zion L.O., one of the very tall towers. Though the L.O. was staffed I arrived at 8:00AM, too early for visitors to climb the tower and visit the cab.
