Ascent Trip ReportEnter Redcap Rd just north of Orleans on CA 96 at north end of Klamath River bridge. After 2.4 miles, the steep, 10-mile drive to Orleans Mountain L.O. starts at FSR 10N13. Ignore branch roads at
3,9 and 4.5 miles. The dirt road is generally good, but steep in a few places where I used 4WD. The unstaffed L.O., though not a tower,
stands boldly on its perch, offering sweeping views. Distance from CA 96: approx 12.5 miles.
