Log,Mountain

Climbing and access information for climbimg this p2k peak from the west is found on page 117.


Since my first ascent of this peak in 1988 a lot of the forest on its west side has burned. In 2013 I climbed the peak with John Platt and John Fadgen from the east. Shell Rock Peak is located just east of Log Mountain and is also a worthwhile ascent.

To reach the east side of the peak start in Cascade and take the Warm Lake Highway (C)(1)  past Warm Lake to the Johnson Creek Road. (C)(1.3) Drive North roughly 10 miles to FS 410. (C)(1.3.1)  Follow FS 410 fro 10 miles to nice trailhead with camp spots and a concrete FS toilet. Much of this route traverses burned mountain sides.
