Ascent Trip Report

This is a great little loop hike, a nice change of pace from the usual out-and-back peakbagging we all know and love. The road to the trailhead is paved most of the way, and the drive is beautiful. The trail climbs at a moderate grade through forests and rises to a clear grassy ridgeline. The summit is off the trail at a nondescript point in the trees. Way better views from Chucksney Mountain to the north. This was the first walk I ever took my roommate out on, and he had a great time.
