Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up & did Cardigan today with Brian , Luna & Kiki. We wanted to to some trails on the east side but plans changed & we hiked up from State Park
Weather was good a little warm but clear .We took the Westridge Tr up to the summit lots of people up there & also dogs Luna enjoyed meeting new friends....
Stayed on summit for about an hour & started down using Clark Tr to Warden's Cabin then took South Ridge Tr down over South Peak & Rim Rock. South Ridge Tr after Rim Rock is a little steeper but was fun going down
So about a 4 mile hike Brian & I both felt good after ...I will have to check out the east side of this Mtn someday
