Ascent Trip Report

Blah. Another wonderful weather day in the Cascade. Shortage of time. Poor visibility. Soggy heather sidehilling. Two strikes for me now on Forgotten. And best of all...the USFS has blocked a perfectly driveable road to the TH for some unknown reason. Instead, you can now use the Mount Dickerman TH which conveniently adds 4 miles to the trip. Thanks USFS!
