A more direct route to Near Point than using the Basher Trailhead. Access is through an easement in a residential area. There is no trail sign and no parking at the trailhead due to "Fire Lane" signs.

A more direct route to Near Point than using the Basher Trailhead. Access is through an easement in a residential area. There is no trail sign and no parking at the trailhead due to "Fire Lane" signs. The trail was frozen on 1 November, which made it much less muddy. A bit slippery on the way down, so I used my Kahtoola crampons.
