Ascent Trip Report

Departed Cardigan lodge at 0910 and ascended via Holt, Cathedral Forest (Holt - Clark cut off) and Clark Trails. Wonderfully moderate climb with fantastic trail conditions. Very little rocks or roots. The Fire tower was closed, but it was a fantastic summit! Arrived at summit directly on trail time at 1120, and returned to vehicle at 1330. Very pleasant hike. Great for first timers. Be cautious f weather. Ledges at top will be VERY tricky if they get wet.
