Ascent Trip Report

Got to the trailhead and started hiking at 7:16 AM. The first 8 minutes were a pretty constant climb on a well marked and VERY used trail. In places it has 4-6 subtrails and is about 20 yards wide or more. After that point it levels off and I arrived at the summit at 7:33 AM. Rocky has nice views and an open rocky summit. Short hike but worth the time and effort. It took 15 minutes to get back to the trailhead and I drove off to Bald (Rondaxe) Mountain.

3rd annual Opt Out hike!
