Ascent Trip Report

The road to the campground is dirt, but very good (passenger car friendly). The trail leaves from the northwest corner of the campground (shows as the guard station on the map, but it's not). The campground is very nice, and free (as of 9/26/16).

The trail had some fallen trees to avoid, but was mostly well maintained. Once leaving the trail, the going was fine, until higher up on the ridge where the ground became loose and steep. We avoided the worst by heading further west on the ascent. On the descent, we glissaded down the scree.
