Dennis and I were able to drive up to near Cass House Peak and hike from there. I know the author of this page and Greg J. hiked up from the east which is a much steeper effort. Beautiful views from up on that summit and we also hiked up to the top of Cass House peak afterwards. Our timing to do the road up there was perfect as a week earlier we would have been stopped by a snowbank. 4WD and high clearance and Lo/Lo gear were key. Some very steep parts to get up to where we parked. It was 5 miles RT and about 1350' of elevation gain overall.
