Ascent Trip ReportHorn Mountain requires a 5 mile drive on a rocky road in order to reach the access gate, but it was not posted. From the gate it is only .18 air miles to the summit which requires only .25 miles of hiking. I covered this distance in 7 minutes and was surprised to find a nice picnic area with tables, a shelter and two scenic overlooks. An old lookout tower is there, but it is fenced. I was not able to find the summit benchmark. This area is nice enough that, if it was open, I feel sure it would be a very popular place and well used. I got back to my car in 6 minutes.
