Ascent Trip ReportGreat winter hike from Quail Spring Road with Barry and Abby. A total roundtrip distance of 11.6 miles in about 6 hours 20 minutes (including snack time on the summit). Awesome views; the ridgeline to the peak resembles much higher summits, thanks to the open terrain, quartzite rock, and expansive views. Waypoints from BirdandHike.com were helpful for route finding.
