Ascent Trip Report

We encountered the "founder" and maintainer of the trail cutting brush in the gully about halfway through the hike. With him was an Eagle Scout candidate who is going to be doing some trail marking.

At the top we had great views including Lassen and the base of Shasta. The trail was a bit muddy in the morning due to recent rains. We encountered a few reddish salamanders or newts near the start of the trail that we haven't seen anywhere else nearby.
