Ascent Trip Report

We started the day from the DEC lot in Inlet NY. We stayed on the Fourth Mountain-Black Bear trail. My GPS was not functioning properly, but we took the easier northern route to the top and looped out the steeper part. Views from the false summit and summit were great. Had the trail and summit to ourselves as it is still early. Trail was in good shape, save for some running water the first .75 miles or so.
