Ascent Trip ReportI did this by mistake. I was driving up there looking for another trailhead and saw this magnificant overlook with a lake (Olivia's Lookout) so checked it out. Since there was a little trail system there, i checked it out and went up the walsh trail to the ridge trail, and figured lets check this mother out. It was the 'yukon ridge' trail. I went all the way to the high point past the flag over about 4 or 5 of its peaks a few miles out. Was pouring rain, but i just put on my lowe alpine goretex windbreaker and was dry as a bone. Had a nasty dunkin donuts breakfast croissant for lunch up there. This was a pretty little ridge trail and am glad i bumped into it. I was so impressed with this area I took my family here the next day for a little mothers day picnic. As we summited the small little bump ontop of the walsh/charcoal trail (not the ridge highpoint) the weather dried up and the sun shined on my wife in a glorious mothers day miracle. Im going to go again some day to see what the area is on the other side of the road which looks like it had a few miles of hiking trails back there as well. Not blood-pumping.
