Ascent Trip Report

A dirt road climb ------ .6 miles, 20 minutes RT.

I made a quick side trip to this summit on the way to Catamount Mountain.

From Au Sable Forks, JCT #9N/W Main Street, we went north on W Main a short distance to a left turn on Silver Lake Road, .8 miles northwest stayed right at the fork on Dry Bridge Road, .5 miles north turned left onto Tower Road which we followed north for .8 miles to a 5-Way-Junction.

At the southeast side of this Junction is the only gated road which climbs south .3 miles to the summit, capped with a Communication Tower and a number of service buildings. This dirt road has evidence of heavy ATV traffic.
Good views are available to the south.

"I STOOD ONE DAY ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP, FAR AWAY FROM THE SEA,
AND I THOUGHT IT WAS THE GREATEST SIGHT THAT I EVER DID SEE.
THE HILLS THEY SHOWED THEIR BEAUTY, THE RIVERS THEY LOOKED SO GRAND,
I THOUGHT IT WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST SIGHTS THAT GOD HAS SHOWN TO MAN." ------------------ from the poem, "High on the Mountain Top" by benjamin w powell sr.
