Ascent Trip Report

The trail was posted as 2.5 at the trailhead but was also listed as 2.8 miles later on the trail. Trip reports had it at 2.8 and that seemed correct. I was 1:10:13 roundtrip for the 5.6 miles – 34:45 to the top, 5:00 on top, then 30:27 to run down. There were 20 people on the summit including a group of kids from a nearby school. The firetower was fenced off but there were great views of lake George from the open rocks. Most of the trail was very run-able.
