This 6-pointer is moderate for difficulty. Recent trees down across the trail and out-dated USFS trail maps require extra patience on this hike. Park at 48.62151 -117.59801 and look for a small brown sign for Trail 142. Follow this to the intersection of "easy" and "most difficult", direct quote from the sign located at 48.62700, -117.59717. Neither route is the Trail 142 depicted on the MVUM from the Forest Service. Regrdless, remain on the trail and you'll reach the summit. I chose the "most difficult" trail which wasn't difficult. However, look for several UA detours around windfall across the trail.

Once on the final ascent, portions of the trail are exposed. Look for amazing views to the south as you crest the slope. The summit has the remains of a fire lookout tower and a small cabin, both demolished. I operated from the shade next to the cabin with ample tall trees for a throwline.

My actual track .gpx file is on the SOTAMaps page for this trail.
