Brushy, thick forest, all of us conked our heads at least once on tree limbs. Strenuous hike, tougher than the stats would indicate. Easy to get off route by following well-beaten migrant trails which go everywhere.
We parked near the pass of forest road 61 and busted up the steep slopes to the north ridge. We essentially followed the ridge to Washington and also bagged Veteran's Peak (>400ft of prom.) along the way. Lots of up and down along the ridge and some brush to deal with. There is a use trail in parts.
