Ascent Trip ReportA few things of note. First, the road from 241 to the summit has recently been regraded. Specifically, it looks like someone drove a bulldozer the whole way with the blade down. The entire road is now smooth and vegetation free, though it is still dirt after the first mile.
Second, and perhaps related to the first, both gates are now unambiguously locked. That made it a 10.6 mile round trip on foot. But being above an inversion made for beautiful views and fair weather. I was surprised to get a view of Mount Hood and The Enchantments, and the Goat Rocks, in addition to Adams and Rainier, which are prominently featured.
