Ascent Trip Report

Solo hike to start off the Birthday. No one parked in the "beach" lake parking lot upon arrival at 7:15am. Signed in a the trail register and followed the blue marked trail all the way to the service road near the top. Little difficult at points to follow just because of the foliage on the ground from last fall still. Rather gradual trail most of the way until the service road which was considerably more steep. Not great views from the top, but fun to hang around on the ski lifts! No climbing the tower, there was a warning sign from the FCC about the signal strength.
