Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful hike! Brought both dogs out with us for this one. Not much snow, plenty of ice. Needed micro spikes the whole time. Only a few people on the trail. We decided to go up the steeper side (blue trail) and down the more gradual side (yellow trail). We had light snow all day. Ended up being 5.26 miles round trip. There were plenty of lookouts on the top where you’d probably get a great view on a clear day.
