Ascent of Three Ridges on 2016-07-06
|Date:||Wednesday, July 6, 2016|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||3970 ft / 1210 m|
Ascent Trip ReportHiked south from the Reed's Gap parking area to the summit, tagging Bee Mountain along the way. There's a beautiful exposed rock overlook along the way that gives great views of The Priest and Three Ridges. The summit area is fairly flat and the exact summit is not marked so I spent some time visiting the various candidates for the highest point. Trail is easy to follow all the way. Vertical gain reflects only this segment of the hike (after Bee Mountain).
