Fickle Hill offers a ridgeline in the Jacoby Creek Forest.

There is a pull-out on the main road as you enter CN80. See Google street view. Looked to have a decent amount of room, I should have stopped and investigated as I drove past but was short on time.

There looked to be a clear path ENE->E->S. On this trip I was scouting for CN70 spots and was short on daylight; I'll return to operate from here the next time I drive by.

Driving directions: From Hwy 101, take Exit 713 east onto Samoa Blvd
At the traffic circle, take the 3rd exit onto Union St
Turn right onto Bayside Rd
Slight left onto Fickle Hill Rd
Turn right to stay on Fickle Hill Rd
Fickle Hill Rd turns slightly right and becomes Park Ave
Continue onto Fickle Hill Rd

Restrictions: Open public road with pullout to a pair of closed off logging roads. Across road from Fickle Hill Observatory.
