I completed the first activation on Doppler Shift on 04MAR2019.  The hike is roughly 2 miles from a logging gate.  In my case this gate was open however as with all these gates they can be closed and locked at any time so pass them at your own risk.  I was able to drive about 3/4 of the way up before finding a 'Unauthorized Motor Vehicle Access Prohibited' sign.  At that point I found a spot to park and hiked the rest of the way to the activation point. 

This area was very recently clear cut however there are also trees avaible for antennas in the activation area.  The summit is fairly large so I had no issue finding a spot to setup my gear.  With the clear cut the view to the east is quite good!
