Comments
Comments: The gated access road was fairly bland. Generally decent footing, except for some loose stuff were the ATVs join in.

The trail proper was mostly dry, but the ledges above the col would be pretty slippery if wet.

Multiple good viewpoints from the ledgy summit (old fire tower knocked over) and many blueberries.
