Ascent Trip Report

Trail easy to follow even starting off in the dark. Get there early to get parking space at TH. Good trail all the way to the summit. We had no views on summit because totally socked in clouds. Water available at 3 places on the way up (approx. 2, 3, and 4.5 miles). Good campsites available at several places on ascent, especially at Cold Mtn./Art Loeb Junction.

Note: .gpx file attached missing first 1.28 miles due to operator error :)
