Ascent Trip Report

From Little Cultus Lake took FSR 640 west for 1.2 miles, then turned right (uphill) onto FSR 644 and drove 0.8 miles to a pullout just below the first switchback at about 5200 ft. From here we hiked to the summit and back on the road, 8.8 miles round trip.

While the road is officially unmaintained and is narrow with very few pullouts, it was clear of any downed timber and can be driven to just below the summit using a high-clearance 4x4 vehicle.
