I am new to this wilderness area, there are no established trails to the summits that I have found yet. This trailhead does have a sign that says it is the wilderness management area but there is a gate and after about a mile a hunting camp; from that point there is a couple of trails from the property that have randomly marked trees (blue paint, pink plastic ties) but the trail itself is very unmaintained and primitive. I was able to make the closest high point using the GPS, this however was in true bush-whacking style. As you can tell by my track I've barely touched this ridge but I'm going to explore it further and will continue to track my excursions..
