Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: I drove in on the network on logging roads that follows the west branch of the Clearwater Brook. I stayed on roads that were closest to the west branch, ending at a fork where one road quickly dead-end and the other quickly became slash piled skid road. This spot is just east of Pisgah. I parked here.

Comments
Comments: I started with the steep bushwhack to Pisgah. The woods were tight and there is some very dangerous soft ground, which consumed my legs several times. The highpoint is obvious and recognized. I followed the ridge north is somewhat thick woods to the boundary swath. The swath to the east is walkable, though steep and vegetated with knee high growth with dangerous footing in places. Going up the slope of N. Sisk was better. I bushwhacked up to N. Sisk in mixed woods that were thick at the top. The recognized highpoint needed work, which I took care of. I retuned to the swath and walked it down to the col. From the swath I could take skid roads back to the car, which makes this a great spot for accessing the boarder.
