Ascent Trip Report

I drove up to a locked gate that is about a mile below the summit. I hiked to the summit along the road from there. The lookout tower had several signs basically saying keep away, don't disturb the lookout employees, so I found the summit and took off down the hill. I took a more direct descent, which cut off over half a mile. The views from the top were okay, but they were made worse by all the haze. Just couldn't escape it on this trip.
