Ascent Trip Report

Arrived at the trailhead at 10 am after leaving Coney Mountain, signed in and started hiking. Nice gradual ascent on a well designed and well marked trail. The 2 trail heads are only a mile or 2 apart. The first .7 of the 1.6 mile hike are on an old road that was paved at one time. The turnoff into the woods is clearly marked. The remaining .9 is a pleasant hike through primarily hardwood forests.

Spectacular 180 degree view from the summit. Another good "bang for the buck" hike.

This was the second of the new "Tupper Lake Triad" mountains that I hiked.
