Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: we parked on victory road in victory at the start of a woods road roughly due south of the peak near a collapsed camp not quite visible from the road. this point is right at the 1911 spot elevation on the usgs. we could have driven about .5 up the woods road to a large clearing and parked there with mid clearance, but did not know that when we parked.

Comments
Comments: this was an interesting one. we walked up the woods road soon noting a mileage sign before reaching what could be an upper parking area. just beyond were markers for mileage and elevation and a well flagged trail that started on old log roads (the signs continued most of the way up). a bit above 2200 we crossed a new looking road (later research showed this road coming in from radar road) and above that the trail got interesting with a section of wooden steps and bridges ascending a cascade (there is another route around this as well). the trail continued to climb (ignore sign pointing right for "summit" as it just shortly reconnects to the better trail) before a slight descent and final steep climb to the western sub peak of the mountain. again there are two choices for the ascent the route to the right being more interesting than the left. there are some great views and other neat things on the sub peak. we initially thought it would be a bushwhack from there to the true summit, but soon found a flagged path that led to the recognized highpoint and summit geocache. we descended the same route.
