Ascent Trip Report

After visiting both the Holy Hill points, Greg, Ben, and I drove the Olds towards point 3 and parked in the Pike Lake Campground overflow parking just across the street from the highpoint. From there we walked west across the street and very quickly found a trail going south up the hill. We passed by the observatory tower and went up the final somewhat steep path to the top, which sits right next to a fence warning of the cliff or steep slopes on the east face. Finally, we visited the observation tower for more views of both Holy Hills, Pike Lake, and the rest of our completed Washington County.
