Ascent Trip Report

I had to bushwhack around a large downed tree in the middle of the north road just before reaching the top. Several smaller trees were down before getting to this spot, but getting past them was just a matter of brushing the branches away. Another large tree had fallen across one of the wooden bridges on the north spur trail, but it had been chain-sawed and moved off the trail. Fallen trees were typical of much of the area around Corvallis for the past couple days, due to an icy rain storm that weighed them down until some broke.
