Ascent Trip Report

It's 27 miles starting at Industrial Park Road to the 4wd road (144 U) where we parked, it's a rough drive that I wouldn't recommend for a passenger car. There are good places to camp along the road at 13 to 16 miles up and also at the trailhead. Easy walk up the road and open forest (with some dodging around dead falls ) to pleasant grass meadow to the top. Since the summit has limited views we continued a bit south to the edge of the meadow droppoff, great views and some Indian cerimonial rock construction.
