Ascent Trip Report

Started from trailhead on County Rte 47 near Frost Valley YMCA. Planned to do a traverse of whole trail to Pine Hill, but later-than-expected start (me forgetting my car keys) and long drive including spotting second car gave us too late of a start. The unmaintained trail, with ice-weigted branches also slowed our progress. We returned to Rte 47 after summiting Big Indian and made it as sun was going down. Probably between 15 and 20 degrees F on the mountain during the day.
