Description

From FS 071, go left on the first dirt road and ascend steeply to a gate. Once through the gate you'll descend slightly before a last small bit of uphill to the road's high point. From there it is all downhill (though gradual) to the radio tower. There is no further access from the end of this road, so your only option is to return the way that you came.
