Ascent Trip ReportThird state highpoint on the day! This was a drive up, mostly on marble and pea sized gravel. This was worrisome on my descent - the dust caked my brake rotors. I had to stop, let my rotors cool, and pour water on them to clean them. Good views at the top - better along road on east side of mountain.
