Ascent Trip Report

For me, a surprising find of trails leading to both summits; first on reaching the Lawson Lake Upper Camp discovered a Red Trail leading up to and circling its plateau with views of the lake on one side and views to another woods road below on the other side (herd path here led back to a deer yard in the plateau's mid section) which road below turned out to be more of the Red Trail and having found its junction after descending back to the Upper Camp followed it back to its height of land and here found a deer track slabbing its way upward which was an irresistible opportunity of herd paths taking me to my near foregone second summit (ergo my naming it Stag Hill) and another parallel woods road, I continued once back in the ravine along the Red Trail to find myself back on the plateau and finally when back at the trail head explored Lake Lawson and environs enjoying the sight of a pair of young women out in the middle of the lake playing catch with one skating twirls, the other slipping and sliding.
