Ascent Trip Report

Big Schloss has always been one of my favorite hikes but I haven't been in a couple years. The weather was perfect and the views at the top were just as stellar as I remembered! When I have more time I hope to return and get Mill Mountain as well. The trail is well marked and the spur for Big Schloss would be difficult to miss. Nice bridge across the rocky peak makes life a little easier - probably no need to scramble on the rocks up top but it was fun.
