Ascent Trip Report

I jogged up the tower road to the summit. It was nice to see a "hikers welcome" sign by the gate. They plow the road in the winter, so don't expect to go for a rip down on a sled like I did. Recent evidence of multiple hikers and one mountain bike. Great view from the top. And they even left the summit intact, which is about 100 feet from the tower.
