Ascent Trip Report

Driving Directions:

I left I-84 at Exit 338 from the west.

0.0 TURN NORTH onto Lookout Mountain Road
0.1 TURN LEFT at a fork in gravel.
0.2 TURN RIGHT to stay on the main road.
14.2 TURN LEFT and pass the sign to Bassar Diggins Campsite 1/4 mile on your right.
15.2 PARK below a steep road on your left (gate is just out of sight).

If another car is parked here you might need to drive a little further to find parking as I did.

The road hike is open with great views. I camped afterwards just east of Point 5888 near the road.
