Ascent Trip Report

Road 32 is closed at the bridge across Camp Creek, evidently due to structural concerns. Resurfaced sections of Road 32 above the closure indicate the bridge closure occurred sometime after the year 2010.

From Camp Creek, cross the bridge and follow the paved road to near its end, then follow a non-maintained trail over what was once a graveled extension of Road 32 to the start of the maintained and signed Flag Mountain Trail #766. The actual summit may occur to the north of the trail or, more likely, to the south of the trail a little to the west. Another summit in its own contour line farther west seemed clearly lower. We visited each potential summit.
