Ascent Trip ReportCame at this one from the north. The gate at 949 and Empire Ridge Road was open, with a sign on it showing the dates. Empire Ridge was snow/slush covered and I wished our Ford Escape had higher clearance. Made it to the Little Vineyard spur (east) which was posted "Closed to Motor Vehicles." Lots of boot tracks from hunters, but since it was Sunday, had the hike to myself. Much easier to come at this one from the south...shorter and the road was in better condition.
