Access

See the Ohio Benchmark page for access details.

Northeast Ridge, Class 1

From the parking spot shown on the map below follow the overgrown road east and then southwest to the saddle at the base of the peak’s Northeast Ridge. From this point a dirt bike trail will lead up the ridge to the summit. If you are heading to this peak from Ohio Benchmark you can reach the saddle by leaving the Ohio Benchmark road at roughly 8,200 feet and following a two track southwest down to the saddle.

The three peak route I followed. This route covered 5.54 miles with roughly 1,600 feet of elevation gain. It’s Peak 8083 not 8063. My error.
