No access... (or no easy access?)

When I started learning about SOTA in late 2018, it sounded fun to activate a new summit.  I tried for Ebey Hill in Snohomish County.

From Highway 530, I turned right onto Jim Creek Rd and was hoping to drive up Ebey Mountain Road.  Very clear "Do Not Enter - Private Road" sign posted.  Also drove further up Jim Creek Rd, and tried to access from Riley Lake area on East side.
