Thurston County High Point Trip Report

Date: June 22, 2003
Author: Bill Jacobs

The usual route to the Thurston highpoint is gated at the entrance to the Alder Lake Recreational Area. A small sign on the gate says closed from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The large permanent sign to the right indicates the road is normally closed Labor Day to Memorial Day. Entry via the Alder Lake Road may not be possible until the summer of 2004 turning an almost drive-up into an 18-mile round trip hike. Driving access may be possible on forest roads from other directions.
