Ascent Trip Report

We started at the snowbowl parking lot, walked to the trailhead through the ski resort and started hiking around 5am.

The hike was moderate—easy sloping terrain but it took 3 hours, 49 minutes to summit.

The weather in early August was beautiful—61 degrees when we started the hike but as we were making it back to the car around 12:20 there were clouds beginning to form on the mountain. My advice is get an early start and summit while the weather is beautiful.
This is State highpoint number 3 for me and a good one for getting acclimated to higher elevations.
