Ascent Trip Report

Hiked this as part of a trip with my friend Will over Thanksgiving. Just a simple walk up a logging road. The road was really high-quality up to where we parked, where it turned steep and got a little snowy, and I didn't want to test my little Ford Fiesta (and I wanted to hike!). The fire tower at the summit is one of the tallest I've ever seen. Extremely cold, as expected, at the summit; probably five degrees or lower, and plenty of wind.
