Ascent Trip ReportThere is a good trail at the end of the Highland Lakes camping area, the trail goes through the forest before turning up the ridge towards Folger. The trail becomes hard to follow for a bit but its easy to know where to go. The trail was better than expected, the only part that was crappy was the final 400 feet or so, on loose gravelly pebbles, although on a well defined trail. Descent was fast and easy.
