Ascent Trip Report

The parking lot is very small, and we were turned away at 7am because it was already full. Fortunately we found a space just outside the tunnel, adding about .3 miles each way to our hike.

The hike was fun but ridiculously crowded- narrow parts of the trail had people waiting for traffic going the other way to pass, and even a line to visit the very highest lookout.

The history of the observation station at top made the trip much more interesting, so don't ignore the signs!
