Ascent Trip Report

Another nice day in the woods, short hike mostly all uphill and I didn't see any trail markers along the way my wife did not either, there was a few side trails that we did not explore and the trail to the top keeps going towards different Mts. and cliffs we stopped at the top of silver lake Mt. Views were great u can make out the castle on whiteface, from here the ponds below look very close, but the summit is partly covered in trees so the views are limited but the ones u get are great, there was 10-15 people on the Mt besides us it was busy, had a little rest on top then headed back down nice hike
