Ascent Trip Report

Hiked Lake Rd from Ausable Club parking lot. Stopped at Rainbow Falls- completely frozen. Went up to Indian Head- trail was all ice/snow. The ladder was completely frozen over so we had to bushwhack around it. From Indian Head we went over to Fish Hawk Cliffs. Went over the back side and down to Gilbrook/Colvin junction. Attempted to go left along the AMR boundary trail to Gilbrook, but it was completely untouched. Bushwhacked through thigh-deep snow for 0.4 miles until it came back into the trail- so thankful! Gilbrook trail back to the 2mi mark on Lake Rd. All of the brook was frozen, but it would be a beautiful warm weather hike along all the waterfalls.
