Follow road maps to Forest Creek Rd off of Hwy 238. You will turn left on BLM 38 3W 5 where there is a large sign for Oregon Belle Creek Access Road. On google this is Isabelle Mt. Rd but there is no sign with that name. Road is worn through asphalt with plenty of potholes but very driveable. You will immediately pass an old historic school on your right and numerous interesting old gold mining rock piles covered in moss along the creekside just past the 2mi marker. Drive until you reach Isabelle Saddle, info board and picnic table are present. Plenty of room to park here or to the right near the gate, just don't block gate. Hike the road that is gated, it will fork after a short walk, take the left fork of the road up to the summit. The hike is approximately 2.5 mi RT, with approx 900ft gain. Equipment on the summit but I had no interference. Plenty of room to operate and trees and rocks to use to set up with. Great view of the Siskiyous and beyond.
