Ascent Trip Report

I drove in from the south and drove out north to Durkee. Although there was a lot of washboard on Lookout Mtn. road from the south, it is a lot more car friendly, navigation is easy, and you never pass close to houses. Access from Durkee via the Manning Creek and Daly Creek Rds, is legal (there are a lot of signs warning you not to trespass off of the road), but navigation takes a little more effort, you pass right through a couple of ranch house yards, and the road from Daly Creek to the Big Lookout gate is very rough. Subaru made it through but it took some creativity.
