I completed a hike to the ridge line yesterday to check out the flora in the area, and wanted to post this triplog in an effort to encourage others to do the same. There is absolutely no way for me to complete a hike to the summit as a day hike, and I suspect I am not alone on that score. So don't be put off by prior descriptions of this area, just come on down! Easy drive is manageable for passenger cars. And the hike up to the ridge line is a far cry from the horror described by those megahikers who went all the way to the summit. That said, route finding is a tricky business, because the trail is badly overgrown in spots, mostly by tall grass. The area is pristine, rarely visited, and our hike to the ridge line at 5300' was a fine workout and very rewarding, with absolutely magnificent views. Hats off to you folks who went further, but I am quite pleased with the manageable hike I was able to complete, and encourage other more mortal hikers like myself to do the same!
