Ascent Trip Report

I’m a pilot and I saw Rib Mountain from the air on approach to the airport. Once we were parked at the gate I looked it up and decided to climb it when we got to the hotel. I started from the holiday inn express near the airport and walked 5.9 miles to the high point mostly following roads with a few trails here and there (I used the Peakbagger App and google maps set to walking for navigation). Once up the climb was great! Steep rocks could be treacherous in the winter, but luckily it’s spring. The are very well established trails and excellent signage to tell you where to go, there is also a visitor map at the park entrance that marks the elevations and shows the high point. If you can’t find it with the map, follow the signs to the observation tower, it is directly in front of the wooden structure.
