Ascent Trip ReportParked at highway turnout where Barley Flats Road intersects with Highway 2. The gate was locked with conflicting signs stating "Stop, Restricted Road, No Public Access" and "Trail Closed to Motorized Vehicles, Foot and Horse Travel Permitted." I walked up the paved road to the west end of the fenced complex, where there was a locked gate with a sign "Authorized Personnel Only." I choose not to sneak past the fence, but looked for a use trail that followed the south fence line. Trail was difficult to follow and went through some very dense brush. Kept loosing the trail and gave up. Walked toward the east end of the complex along the paved road and climbed up the slope to the water tank. Could not find register. Walked down same paved road.
Not sure why this peak is on the HPS list, as the trail consists of a paved road and the access to the summit is limited/controlled.
