Ascent Trip Report

We took the Lowe's Path up to the summit and back. Parking is at the Lowe's store - you pay the store attendant $1 a day (which is pretty awesome).

The trail is not well traveled, which made for a very quiet day. It passes a Log Cabin and a Shelter. The only downside to this ascent is that there are two false peaks - both of which have pretty decent gain and loss associated with them. We decided to come down via the cutoff past the second shelter. This was a great decision.

Overall the hike great day despite the peak being VERY windy.

We heard on the way down that there's a great route from the Cascade trail - worth researching for next time.
