Ascent Trip Report

rooster comb was a steady uphill climb for most of the way. It wasn't hard by any means however I was tired. Nice hike and very busy. love the pond you can walk around at the beginning and the bridged walkways were cool at the beginning. Also at the last leg of the hike there was stairs to the summit that was deceiving online it looked as though it was more like a ladder and turned out to be more like a staircase (which was a nice surprise to come upon)Beautiful views at the top!!
