Ascent Trip Report

I had route descriptions handy, but Google Maps easily took me all the way to the gated road. The roads are all in great shape, and I had no difficulties driving them in a passenger even with mud and snow. I did not see any signs marking Iron Peak Road as being private, though I could have missed them. I passed several cars going up and down Spyrock Road, and even with out of state plates everyone just waved. However, it is clear that the peak is on private land as the gate is posted and an old trailer is parked with a clear view of the first 100 yards of the road. There also appears to be an inhabited residence directly west of the gate, but since it is lower down there is no view of the road. Otherwise, it is a quick jaunt up the road to the flattened summit and locked fire lookout.
