Ascent Trip Report

This was the longest hike yet and as beautiful as it was I was questioning if I had gotten too ahead of myself in agreeing to this mountain so soon, but all those thoughts vanished the moment we reached the tower and the rocks that the tower sit upon and the view all around you make every ache worth it! I also thought the trail was very beautiful the way the tree roots grew throughout the trail like steps. The tower was closed to the public, just happy it was still there to see.
