Ascent Trip Report

I red-lined Cold Brook Tr. Tough trail thanks to the old logging activity. Only about .5 miles that was difficult to follow. Used my GPS for the first time to make sure I stayed on the correct road. Grassy area. Picked up 65 ticks and killed all of them. When the trail reached the WMNF boundary, it became much easier to follow. But the treadway was still faint, just not as overgrown. Upon linking up with Evergreen Valley Link, it was much easier to follow. Some beautiful ledges below the summit. The summit was beautiful. I then headed back and constructed 4 cairns to assist people in the future.
