Ascent Trip Report

Followed the Kineo trail to the height of land, and then bushwhacked the ridge to the summit. Some forestry research going on on the ridge provided some short bits of trail to follow. The bushwhack was mostly easy with the exception of a couple large blowdowns. Limited views to the North from the summit. Same route down, except following a section of snowmobile trail to avoid the swamp.
