Cottonwood Peak is located in northern California, north of Yreka, and just west of Interstate 5. There is a gated gravel road that appraches the upper reaches of Cottonwood Peak from the east. Fortunately, the gate is not locked and is used to keep the cows off the freeway. I saw a momma bear with 2 cubs on the drive in.

I just stopped along the road when I got within a mile of the summit and hiked cross country up the east ridge of Cottonwood Peak. There was about 900 ft of elevation gain and there was a little scrambling over and around some boulders and brush, but there was nothing technical or difficult. 9/2/2005
