Ascent Trip Report

Patty and I got an early start today waking up at 3am to drive to the trailhead for this hike. We started from St. Hubert's and walked the long road before finally reaching the real trail head! We decided to take the scenic trail for the ascent and it was the perfect day to do this!!! The trail is a little bit longer and a little steeper but it follows the Ausable Lake, which is private, and provides some amazing views of the lake, Indian Head, Colvin and Blake, etc. In addition, this trail has you summitting both peaks for Sawteeth. The trail is not rocky, it's wooded, not very muddy and a very nice trail to hike on. I highly recommend this approach! It will take a little longer but it's well worth it!!!

We took the regular trail down where we were able to see Rainbow falls. We thought about taking Lost Lookout back but Patty's knee was still in recovery mode and I planned on finishing my 46 the next day.

This was an awesome hike, I would definitely do this again!!!!
