Ascent Trip Report

Public. Car to TH. Just hike the Kettle Crest Trail North then the 24 trail to the summit. Wildflowers were out. Very pleasant trail for E. WA. You can see a few junctions with the old trail where it is abandoned. Presumably re-routed to reduce the grade for bikes and horses. Interesting old lookout cabin which has been restored. True HP is a little bit over to the East.
