Ascent Trip Report

We started at the Horse Trailer parking area to get more distance out of our hike. The steep uphill grade up Mineral Springs Rd will get your blood pumping for sure! We then entered the wooded area beyond the neighborhood entrance. It was not a difficult hike, but nice through the shady underbrush and pine trees. This might be pretty "snakey" in the summertime. We were "out and back" so the trip back was similar, and uneventful. There can be some traffic in the evening on the road hike portion, but plenty of road side to stick to.
