Ascent Trip Report

Another beautiful day to hike - lots of people and the parking area was full. Great views from the fire tower 360. There are also two radio towers on the summit and a caretaker's cabin. The climbing part was pretty steep and long but the views from the top were worth it. Could see the backbon of the high peaks area in the distance and could spot Indian Lake.
