Ascent Trip Report

Started the hike from Madison Junction Campground at 8AM, summited by 9:30AM, set up a hammock and read for an hour, then descended to campground in 1 hour. Pleasant wooded hike with nice views from the summit. Not high enough to see the Tetons, and no good view north of the Gallatin Range. Nevertheless, good little hike.
