Ascent Trip ReportSleepy S/Elk Ridge/Meadow View/Bergen Peak out and back. CMC hike in preparation for our trip to Mounts Ararat and Musala in August. There were 9 of us. The weather was great: mostly sunny all day, and warm. The upper Bergen Peak trail still had some mud & snow from last weekend's storm. The park was busy: lots of hikers, runners, dogs and bikers. We saw a miniature pony pulling a wagon on the Sleepy S on the way back. This was my 3rd time on Bergen, but this was the 1st time I actually went to the summit sign, the other two times I just stopped at the radio tower.
