The road having a creek run through it was really annoying at the beginning and added too much mileage. The summit was worth it, but the distance was killer. Never trust a map of the Salish Range. Hiked with Rebelgrizz and JFK.
The washed out road made this road hike a round trip of 15.3 miles and over 3000' of gain...very strenuous! But the summit views and the lookout made it all worthwhile...summitted with The Levitator and a spooked Kitty. Saw a black bear running away from us on the way down...always cool to see a bear!
