Ascent Trip ReportBlue Creek Mountain vies with Gordon Mountain as the prominence HP of Del Norte County. About 9 miles south of Orleans turn west at the south end of Aikens Creek CG on CA 96 and drive FSR 13 for 20.3 miles (first 12.5 miles are paved) to a 4-way intersection in the vicinity of the undistinguished summit area of Blue Creek Mountain. I was careful to take the time to tramp around the area, taking in several insignificant bumps to make the best effort to set foot on the highest ground. Not very exciting.
