Ascent Trip Report

Well maintained Leonard Hill Tower Road is signed Leonard Hill State Forest at its junction with Leonard Mtn Road both of which are seasonal roads. The road jog down from the Fire Tower, closed with no lower stairs, though maybe restored someday, and summit views was along a mostly dry road except for a short and steep iced over area which was being driven. No snow was anywhere to be seen?
