Map Errors

There are many more old roads on the north side of Osprey Point than the USGS topo map shows. This makes the bushwhack a more difficult navigational effort. Pay more attention to the terrain than to the numerous confusing 2-tracks.

The Climb

From the parking area, hike up through the gated road closure for FSR-238. Follow the jeep road east then southeast. Go straight at a signed junction with FSR-238D to remain on FSR-238. Go right/south at the next signed junction onto FSR-238B. Follow FSR-238B uphill to a signed junction with FSR-238B2. Go right/west onto FSR-238B but leave it quickly to bushwhack southwest up a dry gully to reach the east ridge. Bushwhack up the densely-forested, brushy east ridge to reach the semi-open summit of Osprey Point. The summit had no summit cairn and showed no signs of previous ascent.
