I saw quite a few people back here hunting. I didn't have orange on and I was worried I was going to get shot - I had a couple hunters watching me go up the side hill, but fortunately they figured out that I wasn't a deer. I followed the fence line that goes right over the summit - this way was very steep. There was snow over the fallen leaves which made it very slippery. I fell a couple times and caught my hand on the barbed wire fence. Made it to the top though. The summit was very chilly and a storm was blowing in.
A fun little hike that required a long drive on dirt roads but ended up with a hike of just two miles. The elevation gain was 1800 feet and so considering the distance was just one mile, there were plenty of steep sections to contend with. Time up was an hour an a half and time down was one hour. All was cross country and some time was consumed route finding. There are other route possibilities up this peak and while mine was the shortest in distance, it may not have been the fastest. A good route looked feasible from the southeast side.
