Photo: Great hike - Trailhead is 30 miles (all gravel) west of Augusta. The trail follows Straight Creek, crosses it, and then switch-backs up through Honeymoon Basin to the ridge that leads to the top. I highly recommend this one. Many of the hikes I've done in the Augusta area are off-trail and have "sketchy" parts, but this one is great trail all the way (very steep for the last 2 miles).Photo: On Benchmark Road west of Augusta - butt to butt trafficPhoto: Zoom shot of Patrol Mtn.
