Ascent Trip Report

MAY NEED TO CHANGE THIS DATE - VERIFY WITH CAMERA DATE

Nice quick hike. Very steep in parts but not too bad. Entire trail is open, providing great views. Whenever you needed a break from the steep ascent, you could just turn around and check out the scenery. Lots of towers and buildings up top. Notes online mentioned a fire tower, but we were unable to find anything that resembled a current or abandoned fire tower.

Since the trail was completely clear, I imagine the summer months would be a little more brutal with the sun bearing down.

Took the trail that follows near the power lines. Used to be an old ski resort.
