Ascent Trip Report

A great morning bike ride up Mount Gleason. There were sunny skies above us and a sea of clouds below. Lots of trash towards the top so try to pack some out if you have room in your pack. The trail starts of steep, flattens out, then gets quite steep towards the end but the ride downhill makes the slog up worth it. Times, mileage, and elevation gain include making a stop on the way up at Beartrap Peak.
