Ascent Trip ReportGot one last hike in for 2014!
Took the easy and pleasant Old Bridle Path to the top. It was very icy in spots, so I wore microspikes for most of the ascent. Near the top was a good lookout ledge, but the real view was from the summit proper, where almost all of the Lakes Region was visible. I took in the view and then headed over to East Rattlesnake via the Ridge Trail.
