These driving directions aren't exactly accurate- it probably has to do with the subdivisions they've put in since this page was created. Once you make the turn off of Badger Mountain Road, just follow the road- after you go down and back up the steepish gully (made it in an AWD), come to a three way intersection and make a sharp right. A very short distance, and the marker will be on your right. Great views. Locals didn't creep us out.
I got a guided tour by Dean the first time and then led Greg and David up here the second time. Prior to that, there were a few lame attempts on which I turned back. Once by getting lost, once by roadwork and then once more as I afeared of trespassing issues.
Something about the swastika on a garage door and the "Aryan Nations" sign on a fence, made me uncomfortable about this neighborhood. WA P2k 7/144
"Climbed" it sometime back in February 2006...good trip!
My compact vehicle nearly grounded-out at the bottom of the steep hill. I had to put my foot all the way down on the accelerator to get through that section. Then the road was too muddy to comfortably continue driving much further on, so I had to park and hike (run!!!) the rest of the way on foot. I felt very uncomfortable in the area, and I kept feeling like somebody might come out of one of the local shacks in the area and shoot me just for being there. At least several lots in the area were for sale, and I got a chance to look at those while en-route. I did not like this county highpoint, and I don't plan to go back.
After hiking around the summit for about 20 minutes I finally found the Bench Mark.
