Ascent Trip Report

This was a trip including Clatsop, Columbia, Washington, Polk, Lincoln, Coos, Curry, and Benton counties.

Paved road to trailhead could easily be done by small car.

It was drizzling pretty much the entire hike, save for a few 10-minute periods of pebble-sized hail that pelted me at the summit and on the descent.

With the weather I did not get to enjoy the views but it was fun to summit nevertheless. Did not find the benchmark.

Only saw a lone hiker on her way down on my ascent and 2 heading up on my descent when I was within a mile of the trailhead.
