Ascent Trip Report

From the trailhead, I took Mt. Major Trail 0.2 mi to the start of the unofficial path at right. Took that, which was marked by occasional cairns and flagging, past some boulders and through open woods to the clear and rocky but viewless summit. 'Whacked around for a bit, then went back down the same way, checking out a cave slightly off trail halfway down.
