Ascent Trip ReportThe GPS coordinates given on Peakbagger are slightly off. If the lookout tower's base is the high point then the decimal degrees should be 39.000575, -119.952237.
If I was doing this one again I would park on the top of Lookout Rd across from the stone steps to the lookout tower. You could step out of your car up the stone steps to the towers base and back again in under 30 seconds.
