Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful area, Hurricane Creek trail is one of the nicer trails I’ve been on. Missed the creek crossing initially and overshot, the reason for the extra elevation. Plenty of water in the upper meadow. My dog picked up every burr in the entire meadow, took me several days to remove them all! Subtle difference between two trails heading up the ridge, but climber’s right going up felt more solid, climber’s right going down more loose plunge stepping for an easier descent.
