From exit 85 it is about 20 miles to the left turn onto old Blewett Hwy, forest road 9715 (there is a sign, if you get to the construction area with the 35 MPH, you went too far). And then 3.8 miles on the old Blewett Road to the pass, there is a large open area for parking (if you start going downhill, you went too far).

There could be ticks. This hike is mostly in the open/sun.
