Ascent Trip Report

after the easy trail to Kosciusko we took a side trip out to Townsend. this is definitely more of a peakbagger experience. nice single track use trail leads up to a meadow below the summit where many people were setting up to camp (camping is prohibited at Kosciusko itself). the summit rocks offered some easy class 2. great views.
