Ascent Trip Report

From the intersection of M69 with M95 in the hamlet of Sagola, go west on 69 1.1 miles to an unsigned dirt road on the left. Turn left (south)and take this road across two or three pipeline clear-cuts. Just past the last of these is a fork. I took the right fork, but RIGHT was WRONG. After the best part of a mile I realized the error of my ways and found a tight turn-around spot and returned to the fork, this time taking the correct branch. A short drive took me to the site of the former lookout tower, whose location was confirmed by GPS. I found a witness post but not the BM.
