locke4564x4 Road  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2013

locke456

Hike this one morning before heading over the Upper and Lower Table Rock near Medford. Was able to safely drive and park a small 2WD sedan right to the beginning of the 4x4 access road, and hiked up that to the top. Once I'd reached the top, I was passed by a senior citizen in a Mini Cooper, so I suppose you could drive all the way to the top if you'd like. Amazing view of Shasta and a fun summit to wander around on, despite all the equipment and buildings.

I did a bunch of easy SW Oregon P2K's this day, with Hamaker preceding this one. I had lots of daylight so I opted to walk up the summit road.

A high school cross country teammate and I ran to the summit the night before the Siskiyou Outback 15k race which is on the same day as the big 50k race. Easy summit but racing on a 7000 foot mountain was a lot harder.

On my way back to Nor. Cal. from Medford and decided to hike it. Parked at the ski area and hiked the maintenance road to the summit. I'll have to try the 'Marathon Route' that Dennis Poulin described as I watched a great mountain bike race down that route to Lithia Park. Great sunset.

Hiked up from the ski area on the maintenance road. Good views of the area. Too smoggy to see Mt McLaughlin, but Shasta was out.

Was skiing with freinds (Lived in Grants Pass at the time), took a break and hiked up the road to the summit. Didnt think anything about it until I read Larry"s account(cascadetravler). Overcast, no view this day.

Went down ther for a ski trip, I did a little downhill a little backcountry and tagged the summit while I was at it. I hear theres some bouldering to do there in the summer.

Tagged this on the way home from the Tahoe area. Nice views from the summit. What's up with the volleyball? Weird, wild stuff.

I hiked up from the picnic area but ended up going through some thick brush that made the going tough. True, I could have driven up the road but I needed the exercise. I scared out a huge buck deer that had been hiding in the brush and then I made my way across the rocky ridge over to the summit area. It was so hazy I couldn't see much of anything, not even Mt. Shasta.

Got bored, so I hiked up ski runs on Mt Ashland from ski area parking lot. There's a road to the top from the opposite side.

Well graded road to summit, any car can make it. At last road junction (on topo, at 7400') parking for many cars. The last 200 yds had a "closed" sign on it, yet the gate was open. We parked and walked up. Two workers were on the radio tower. When they saw me, one announced I had to leave, because they were spraying "toxic substances". They were, however, only repainting the tower. Neither wore a mask, either. As I was about 50 yds from them, and only a minute walk from the summit, I told them I'd be quick, and went anyway (which upset one of them).

The peak has a major area overlap on the Calif 50 finest completion map (see cohp.org, go to prominence section).

It is a quick drive from I-5. The whole detour took little over an hour.

Climbed Mount Ashland with my wife. Or, rather we hiked it. Not much as far as climbing goes, but the views were very beautiful. Much better than I was expecting. Worthwhile summit.
