Ascent Trip Report

It snowed quite a bit the week before so there was over a foot of snow on the ground. Luckily the trail was broken so it made my first snowshoe of the season a little easier. This is a nice walk in the woods. It's a moderate trail with great views both on the ground an on the tower.

Motion X: 6.15 miles; 4:18:30; 1,593' elevation gain.
