Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and I followed the driving directions for DPS Route B except that you make the sharp right turn at 1.3 miles, not the 1.6 miles mentioned in the guide, and the fork at 2.4 miles no longer exist because the road that branched right has been blocked off by a sign that states "Wilderness Restoration-Foot and Horse Traffic Only". We continued on to the 4 wheel drive trailhead per the guide. The road is not that bad to the trailhead, but a decent, high clearance 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must; also, the mileage from the paved road is 10.0. After parking the truck, we followed DPS Route B to the summit, which is pretty straight forward.
