From the bushwhack juncture, follow the old road up the ridge 5 mi to a small fork where you walk right, down about 100 ft toward your forested goal and another saddle below the summit block with good views left to Tillamook State Forest. Continue S of the summit less than 5 mi on a super-easy traverse and turn sharply to the left onto a faded old wide trail (no sign) before the main road begins to descend. Work your way up 5 mi without any trouble past a few small trees and branches across the path to a tiny green meadow. Some views exist past the end of the meadow, but you should turn right just before that to scramble up a few feet, finding the summit path for the final feet, past a large anthill, to the mossy boulders and rocks that comprise the peak area within the tight pines.
