I don't normally look for single or twin engine civilian planes but this one was near my campsite and turned out to be fairly easy to find.

The wreck cause: Failure to clear terrain. I don't have much more info on this since I don't generally pursue civilian small planes. This one was in an area I camped where there are many wrecks and it was easy to go see.
Site Description:. Didn't actually stand on the site. Viewed it from the ridge above. Appears as if 95% cleaned up.
Best route : Unknown.
