Ascent Trip ReportWalked up the steep gravel access road from the end of Rainier Drive to nearly the top, then took the trail a few feet to the summit. True summit is near some of the antennas and easy to reach on a short trail which represents one end of the blue-blazed trail that runs along the ridgetop. Nice views with an interpretive sign near the top. The morning of my walk up was warm and windy and several trucks passed me on the way up the access road... a good reminder NOT to park in any way that blocks the road entrance (which I hadn't).
