We hiked on the road for a bit then took the right split (higher road - gated). After this road curves right, a visible narrower trail emerges on the right. This trail enters the forest and heads towards the objective.
Here's the fork to gain the ridge, either 3.1km (straight), or 1.3km. The shorter route was blocked off by dead branches but the cairn was still in place.
Of course we took the shorter route.
We took our time in hiking this mountain because both of us were still in pain from hiking up Mt. Burke
the previous day.
The views upon reaching the ridge were breathtaking.
The Fire Lookout was manned at that time and we didn't want to disturb her. We had lunch farther down the heli-pad, enjoyed the view, then went back down.
