Ascent Trip Report

I returned to Cahto Peak to tag the highpoint of the South Fork Eel River Wilderness. I included the short diversion to repeat my ascent of Cahto Peak in the stats for this ascent.

The area around the Fire Lookout has been recently brushed and I think they cleared into the wilderness area a few feet, so it is easy to identify the high ground.

The area around the radio tower has also been brushed, but not so aggressively. I walked up the small hill that is behind the fenced building and this has been brushed. Unfortunately this small hill appears to be outside the wilderness. I bushwhacked down the slope about 40 ft until I reached the desired elevation and then moved north and south until I figured I had tagged the highest point in the wilderness. Except for the brief bushwhack, this one was not difficult.
