Ascent Trip Report

Quick extra credit hike made on the way down from Flora. I used a small herd or use trail from the saddle between the two peaks. There is a lot of clutter on the top of this peak thus the lower hike rating. The use trails connect to the hairpins on the maintenance roads but are so infrequently used (between the saddle) that it is hard to see in places.
