Ascent Trip Report

The rocky trail climbs slowly for the first two miles, then a mile or so that is quite steep, through a gate and into a meadow with the route up to the left. The trail skirts the peak. There's a short bushwhack (ca, 200 yards) to a meadow on the side of the Knob with a very steep ascent. You can walk all around the knob for 360 degree views. A fun hike.
