Ascent Trip Report

Loop part of trail well maintained; last part to summit was relatively challenging (unmaintained/bushwhack). Do not attempt with shorts or dogs, first attempt unsuccessful. Returned without dog, in long sleeves and pants and was able to follow route mapped by Chris Criffith to Summit. Route has visible signed of use and can be follow but had to reference GPS app in ceritan locations when unidentifiable. Mild bushwhacking and minor scrambling. Suggest loading GPX file to your preferred hiking app before attempting.
