The grassy western escarpment offers the shortest route to a fabulous summitviewpoint.
Start: Gorge Creek Road at Gorge Creek parking lot.
Good, flagged route and trail. Here is a track log of the best route.
Note: The reccommended trail, which avoids the cutline was flagged in late 2015. On entering the trees after the initial meadows, look for a flagged route that crosses the creek and climbs open slopes. It eventually joins the cutline, then a little higher makes a big loop left up the steeper upper slopes before traversing right onto the ridge.
- View from the summit.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
