Ascent Trip ReportAt the access gate, I used the "I'd like to visit the pro shop" routine that someone had previously tried successfully, and it worked like a charm. Being an occasionally honest guy, I actually did visit the shop and picked up a memento for my wife's golfer uncle. I then used the "easier access route" described in Dave Covill's T/R on cohp.org, walked through the rows of pines, and scooted onto the golf course's highest bumps in between golfers.
If one is loathe to fib to the gate guards, another option is to park at the CVS immediately east of the entrance on CR-486 and walk onto the property, using the aerial photos as a guide.
