Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Dan and Dad. This was mine and Dan's final hike of the Lake Placid 9er challenge. We started late because Dan and I went mountain biking at Blueberry Hill Trail System over in Elizabethtown beforehand. This was Dad's longest hike since knee surgery last April and his first downhill - he did great! The views from the top were gorgeous with foliage near peak!
