You cannot get to the summit via this trail. You get to the last turn off and it’s downhill mountain biking only.

Trail is closed in multiple spots due to active logging. Couldnt push through. Very annoying (would hike again once opened)

I didn't end up on the right trail as I was uncomfortable going down the logging road, there was a lot of trucks and cutting going on. I did however find other trails that were okay, would be great for biking!
