Ascent Trip Report

Drive north on US 395 to exit 76 (Stead). At the bottom of the ramp turn left and drive .3 miles to a right-hand turn. At .85 miles turn left and drive up an unnamed dirt road (before the water tank you can see on the left.) Cross railroad tracks at 1.2 miles from the exit ramp.

Although a passenger car will not have any problems with the rough road, on the day i drove up i averaged 10-15 mph. At 3.0 miles the road switchbacks to the left. At 8.4 miles you should reach the summit. I talked with two guys who were staffing the communications tower located on top of P8266. This peak is an important link between San Francisco and Salt Lake City communication networks. I visited both summits, but i think P8266 'Lookout' seemed a bit higher.
