2020 Update

I was surprised to find the entrance gate, unlike many in the area, is actually a seasonal gate. For Year 2020, it opened on September 23 and will remain open through November 30. The gravel road was smooth, wide, and brushed-out on the sides... No potholes! I was able to drive my ultra-low clearance vehicle to the false summit as well as backtrack slightly back to the spur leading towards the true summit. At this time, the main road leading up the mountain to the final spur road is suitable for any street legal vehicle.

Regarding the last spur road, the entrance to that road is very overgrown and bermed (first with boulders, then with large stumps); a way trail goes around this first section. Then an easy, open road walk going up to a final super-short bushwhack. It is only 0.2 miles and ~70' of gain from the entrance of the spur road to the true summit. The true summit is not on the road at all, but rather a short jaunt to the side of it.
