Less than a two mile hike from there. The road to get there is FS Road 18N06. It may be closed for the winter, I'd call the Mendocino USFS for info. The peak looks interesting though - more than 1,800ft of prominence. I'd be interested to know how the roads are if you go...

Thanks Scotty. I'll let you know if and when. Next few months a good possibility. Company would be a good incentive.ScottyP wrote:I've been looking at that as well if you'd like company..

What do you think the starting point would be. Take any pics? I'm in Lake county for another couple weeks. Would consider doing the hike if you're interested.ScottyP wrote:I flew around it this past week. Looks fun!

Thanks a bunch jibmaster!jibmaster wrote:The road is gated at the bottom. Down by Fouts Spring.
No access to Bear Wallow TH right now.
No need for a 4X4 either. The roads are all epically smooth.
Haven't been around on the M3 for a few years now, but it's a gorgeous area.
45 minutes from Stonyford gets you to Letts Lake. Another 30 minutes to the Summit Springs TH for Snow Mountain - and the turn off for the M3.
I would bring an axe and a saw. A tree had fallen over the road just before the Summit Springs TH.
Above the M3 intersection.
Tried winching it out of the way, but it was still attached. A small saw would have gotten me through.
