Ascent Trip Report

A very rocky trail, the Dome Trail end's on an egg of rock, with a view south limited to trail width, a few hundred evergreen wooded yards with little elevation gain from summit & nearby posted blue-blazed property line. I managed to cross the last of the season's snow along my bushwack meander back from the summit. Farther back down along the trail below the line of evergreen, I studied a clearing of land survey bearing trees, BT etched into their four lower trunks and signed above. All in all the right time of year for a relatively dry trail to leaf free distant ridgeline views and bug free cool walking / jogging weather, even to Meeting House Rock near the Agawon Tr Jct with seating halfway along to boot.
