Are you sure this is the right trailhead? We tried this route and after a mile the terrain becomes difficult (covered with logging debris). After a mile and a half we could see that we were still nowhere near the summit and turned back.

There is sometimes logging in the area, but the description of the trail is accurate. The trail does gain quite a bit of elevation, but then, suddenly, you are at the summit. Hikers will know they are near the summit when they come to a signpost that with some historic information at the junction of the Fire Warden’s Trail and the trail on the north side of the mountain.

Same thing happened to us last September.

We had tremendous difficulty finding the trailhead last September (2013). Once we did find it, the trail was so poorly maintained that we could not be sure we were on a trail at all. Eventually had to turn back. Is it in any better shape this season? I would be willing to put some time into improving it.
