Drove up to ghost town and parked in the designated parking spot. Robert came down to greet us and show us around. We signed the register book and got permission to access Cerro Gordo. The road past the ghost town is steep.
Dayhike with Pleasant Point Date Climbed: Mar 28, 2015
With Gimpilator. We parked a little past the ghost town at the radio towers. Pretty much the whole area is private property but we asked the caretaker if we could hike Cerro Gordo and Pleasant Point; after signing his logbook, we were on our way.
According to Robert (new caretaker) the owners of the road (ATT I think?) are no longer allowing people on their property due to some idiot shooting up equipment. He still let us pass on through, but if you don't want to go through the town take the ridge from the saddle. Road approach is super easy and quick though. Look for the copper mine.
