Summit: 
W7O/CN-075

Middle Mountain Oregon W7O/CN-075 is a pretty easy activation.  From Hwy 26 travel approximately 28 miles north on Hwy 35 towards the town of Hood River.  At 28 miles turn left (west) on Gilhauly Road.  Shortly after turning on to Gilhauly Road there is a forest service gate that is normally open but just be aware of its existance.  Travel 1.6 miles on Gilhauly Road.  At 1.6 miles you will come to a fairly wide delta shaped "Y" intersection.  Keep right at this intersection.
