Ascent Trip Report

Drove to the end of Sims Creek Road No. 2232 at 4299' - parked between the "2" and the "9". Needed 4WD and high clearance. Note that the turnoff from Vermilion Creek Road has been rerouted to begin about a mile east of the location shown on older maps. There is a sign at the junction indicating Elk Lake, with the "l" in Elk mostly missing.

The trail is indicated by a sign indicating Sims Creek Trail No 881. This leads to a fork in a quarter mile or so where we turned right and followed the trail as mapped to the summit. Note that this trail doesn't get a lot of traffic or maintenance and can be challenging to follow in a few spots. It also goes over the summit rather than passing by to the west as shown on the topo. Extensive views from the summit area.
