Ascent Trip Report

Truly outstanding fall color on an excellent trail with great friends. I highly recommend this hike to anybody with an interest in hiking in this region. Definitely do both peaks if you have the time. Of note, our GPS track starts at the legal trailhead. The road continues past a few houses and is open to hiking only, not driving. It is very fortunate that some people have negotiated with local landowners for hiker access - a model for other ares with poor access. House Mtn Preserve is truly beautiful and worth a visit. Pics
