Ascent Trip Report

Long Valley Peak looks like a rock climb and bushwhack from the trailhead; however, the peak has a pretty good use trail from the power line road all the way to the top. In addition, Kelley and I followed Michael Sullivan's GPS track to the top, which was spot on. On the way down, we avoided the ups and downs of the power line road by following motorcycle trails back to the truck.
