My wife accompanied on this one the first timeand took some pics of me standing on the summit. Well, I was standing on a rock in the middle of a clearing but using the word "summit" is really stretching it. One of those Oregon low elevation mountains that are covered in trees and views are non existent. We also had fog and drizzle to contend with but that is often the case in this part of Oregon.
With cohp'ers Trapper and Roxanne on Nov 1st. We had just done Lincoln county's two highpoints and then we did Trask Mountain and later the same day we did Rogers Peak and Washington county's Saddle Mountains twin spots. Bob Bolton joined us for Rogers and Saddle. 4 in one day on Nov 1st.
My 15th OR CoHP, My 105th USA CoHP Date Climbed: Nov 5, 2011
Eric and I summited this peak together. The road directions were not confusing for us and the lower access gate was open, but the roads were surprisingly covered with snow above 2000' elevation. Some sections were slick, but we did OK for a 2WD vehicle. The hike was short; we were probably only gone from the vehicle 30 minutes roundtrip, including extra time spent at the summit looking at old lookout remnants and finding highpoints. This was our third CoGPP of the day.
