Ascent Trip Report

Drive to Albee Creek Campground on Hwy 221 west of Hwy 101. Just past the campground was a sign indicating a Lookout road is to the left. Drive up this road 0.3 mi to a gate and park.

I hiked the trail (which is really an old dirt road) south following the signs at junctions to Grasshopper Mtn. It's a forested trail until near the lookout tower where one has extensive views to King Mtn and Rainbow Ridge to the west, and the Lassic peaks to the east. There's a benchmark labeled "Grasshopper" south of the tower.
