Ascent Trip Report

The last bit of FS road to the HPS TH has a few tricky sections (protruding rocks/roots/etc.) but currently the condition is actually quite good overall. As I was hiking up it, a Toyota Corolla came driving down so certainly passable in 2WD LC with care and skill. Ducks aplenty on the lower section of route until at least 7850' elevation. Up until that point you should always be in view of a duck if on route. Beyond that point they were more sparse but it doesn't really matter as there are many easy passages from there to summit.
