Ascent Trip Report

Nice hike on a good trail. This is the Ben Lomond trailhead and I parked across the highway next to the river. Beautiful area, but some of the upper part of the hike was burned in a fire a few years ago. Some deadfall across the trail, but not bad. I bushwhacked out the ridge to where the benchmark used to be. The benchmark location is actually lower than the high point along the ridge. The views were somewhat blocked by fog in the river valley. I could see snow up higher on Ben Lomond.
