Ascent Trip Report

I accessed Miller Mtn from Hwy 97, turned east on FR 9772 signed for Miller Lake. In 3.4 miles I turned right on FR 5840 and at 4.9 miles I turned right on Deer Creek Loop Trail 3766. This is a good snowmobile road. I followed this road about 5 miles to the high point of the road and parked. The hike was straight forward up through the forest to the high point. Great hike through a Lodgepole Pine/Western Hemlock forest. The forest is mostly Hemlocks and it is easy hiking through the open forest. No views but the hike was pretty. The Triple Divide is capped with a triangular rock.
