Ascent Trip Report

Started at Mill D North Fork in BCC. AWESOME!!!!! This trail is very mellow and well maintained. Followed passed the lake and cut off the trail right where the trail splits from the ridge. 200 vertical later you are overlooking the 9990 ski lift to the east,and an impressive view of Mt Raymond, Gobblers, BF Twins, Sunrise, Dromedary, and Superior. It was awesome!
