Ascent Trip Report

Started from the Biscuit Brook parking area on West Branch Road. There was a scarlet tanager in a tree near the parking area. The day was surprisingly cool for early July. Passed the Biscuit Brook lean-to, which was in decent shape. The trail beyond the lean-to was growing in badly, especially at the higher altitudes where brush from the sides of the trail was overlapping in the middle. The herd path to the summit was easy to find and follow and the canister was obvious.
