Ascent Trip Report

From the rock scramble (you can keep going up by grabbing roots or use the herd path to the right it just wraps around) you reach a nice lookout. From there it is about .2 to the western summit, a small clearing. The trail keeps going mostly flat for another .8 to the true summit. The true summit is wooded in with no views and marked with a plastic summit marker nailed to a tree. There is a path that goes down i believe to the south but i didnt follow it for too long, im not sure if there are any views down there. I didnt see any summit benchmarks. All in all this was a fairly interesting hike, there is a gorgeous bridge over a wetland area at the beginning that was awesome. Listen some guy died here and shit, there is a a bench dedicated to some guy who commited suicide up there earlier this year. It spooked me out because i was sitting on it tying my shoe.
