"I rode the MTB up the Mt. Gleason Rd. from Mill Creek Summit. I was in the clouds within 10 minutes and had almost zero visibility for the whole day. It was a pretty challenging ride - I had to push the bike for a few tenths of a mile when the grade reached ~9% or so. Found the register at the location specified by the HPS directions. The area is still completely devastated from 2009's Station Fire. The burned out Camp 16 and Station Fire Memorial made for a somber scene in the dense fog." - klotito, Mar 11, 2018
"Took the bike up Mount Gleason Road. Ended up pushing it up some incline. The burned out Corrections facility, Camp 16, near the firefighter memorial is by far the most interesting feature of the road route. Otherwise a crosser-off-er." - JustinB, Jan 17, 2018
"A long, but enjoyable walk from Mill Creek Summit to Mt Gleason along both the PCT and Mt. Gleason road. The burned out fire camp #16 was eerie. I was envious of a group of road bikers who passed me on the way back... cycling is definitely the way to go on this long 20 mile route. " - edg, Mar 26, 2017
"Rode EMTB from Pony Park to Gleason. About ten miles one-way. (Register is on bump north of Gleason.) Passed burned out Camp 16 from the Station fire and its memorial. Although the road is gated/locked, I saw 4 vehicles." - thesearcherextraordinaire, Oct 21, 2016
"The hike along the PCT from Mill Creek Summit picnic area to Mount Gleason is long...11.5 miles each way....but it's a pleasant enough trip. I wanted something relatively flat after doing Rattlesnake last week and Monrovia Peak the week before that. This was just the ticket. There's quite a bit of poodle dog next to sections of the trail, but it's easily avoidable." - HikerMark, Mar 26, 2016
