RedwicAfter Shasta...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2016


After returning from climbing Mount Shasta, I was sooo tired. But then the rest area north of Weed was hot and not shady, so I drove further north to the rest area north of Yreka... which was even hotter. Ugh. I pressed on driving north in a somewhat loopy state of mind. I found a nice shady spot near the lower gate for Mount Ashland. This spot was not only good for sleeping in the car due to somewhat mild temperatures, it presented a nice starting point (albeit longer than I wanted) for hiking up the Mount Ashland road. If I had been thinking a little straighter, I probably would have driven up to the 4x4 road entrance. Oh, well. The views from the summit were great, and I had a very nice conversation with some locals who had driven their SUV to the upper parking area.

First day of three day COHP trip, we finished early on Mt. Eddy so we bagged Mt. Ashland in Oregon en route to Grants Pass for the night. Drove up to within about a half mile of the summit. TR is HERE.

Quick stop on drive back to the Bay Area. Drove to the radar station and walked the last 100 feet. 85 minutes round trip from the freeway.

Shasta was clear and brilliant in the south.

locke4564x4 Road  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2013


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.

Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2005


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.

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2009


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.
