This is a GPS-required hike in order to return safely to your parked vehicle.  This is a treed, non-descript summit. You can get within 1/2-mile on FR2505 then it's a bushwhack to the summit AZ.  I parked at the rusted gate just before FR2505 becomes quite narrow.  I followed the narrow road up for about 1/4-mile until it ended, then marked a waypoint and started the final 1/4-mile bushwhack to the summit.  There is a decent forest road that leads the summit but couldn't determine where that road leads coming down from the summit.  It's not on any maps that I could find.

Driving Directions:   Take FR25 south from Randle.   You can take FR2502 west but it is a single-lane road without many turnouts and goes thru some swampy areas which would be problematic with rain.  Take FR2505 which is several miles south on FR25. There are a few potholes so be careful.  The rusty gate parking area is about 1/8-mile after you leave NFS land...there is a sign.

Access Info:  As mentioned, this is a GPS-required hike as there is about 1/4-mile of bushwhack.  There is a cleared, flat area at the summit....maybe a future cellsite?  No vistas.
