Ascent Trip Report

Cool, minimal snow, we put on Microspikes about a mile in and kept them on the rest of the hike. The first couple mile are on snowmobile trails so are wide with minimal elevation gain. The last mile and a half was typical single track hiking trail. This is a fairly easy hike. I give it a 3 instead of a 2 because of the distance. There were pretty good views from the fire tower, which was open and easy to climb.
