Ascent Trip Report

Rode bicycles from Kineo island (isthmus) to Little Kineo Mountain (which is actually taller than Mount Kineo)and parked our bikes at the TH as shown on USGS map.

Had some minor chutes that needed rope assisting and chimney movements that were fun for young kids.

Gain shown is for hiking only but the trip actually started at our lodge and the bike ride started at 1000 feet so total gain was around 900 but I only count gain on foot.
