Ascent Trip Report

This is a great bike road with a near perfect grade for the descent. We opted to take teh direct road near the peak which ends about 350 ft below the summit(s) areas. from there we walked the rest of the way. Going this way makes for a shorter round trip by up to 3 miles. The middle summit is definitely the highest. My GPS gave readings 16ft higher than the S summit and 33ft higher than the N summit.
