Ascent Trip Report

Been wanting to do this one all summer finally got to it and it wasn't to bad steady grade all the way up not killer steep ever just constantly goes up, with that said, this time of year with all the leaves it was hard to follow the trail we had to pay close attention it was easy to go off the trail today tons of people on this one a handful of dogs. Nice pond at the start of the trail had a cool raised boardwalk the ladder we saw online turned out to be some cool wooden stairs 2 miles up the trail right below the summit there is a side trail to a lookout that is worth the .1 mile trek great views from the summit very nice hike
