Ascent Trip ReportSunny, 70's and a bit humid. Light traffic (3 or 4 other parties) both ways. There is a new foot bridge with a railing on one side over the stream. It's an ugly hike in the spring (no color, just dead leaves and broken timber everywhere. And the summit was a pig sty (orange peels, cigarette butts, misc trash). What is wrong with people?
Otherwise, it was a good hike. I always forget that there is a steep rock section just before the summit!
