Ascent Trip Report

Hiked the Albright Trail with loop back to the parking area using the AT, reported at 3.5 miles on various NPS signs. The top of Dobie Mountain is a short stroll (a "bushwhack," but you can avoid whacking any) east of the Albright Trail; be sure not to be fooled by one of the lower points to the south of the true summit. I chose a warm and breezy day for the hike. Since the leaves aren't out yet in early March, some nice views were available at various places along the way.
