Ascent Trip Report

This area is now posted, and you have to park about a half mile further back than previous trip reports indicate. The sign says no trespassing, but seems to be more interested in keeping people on 4 wheelers and off-roaders out.
I walked the trip up and got literally covered in ticks. I ran back to try and avoid as many ticks on my legs, picked off about 30 from my legs and shoes. Nasty creatures!
