Ascent Trip Report

... first of the season black fly bothersome time, slapped at them with ball cap at summit and was quickly horsefly bitten wicked to running up fire tower stairs to escape their sharp bites. I changed my mind about exploring trails but rather quick jogged back to trailhead after enjoying the cool breezes and Hudson River views up high!
