Ascent Trip Report3/6 completed on Saturday with Tina, Meg (and Finn). Light dusting of snow overnight but we only needed spikes. Snow wasn't deep at all and only a few icy spots. Very nice walk in the woods for the first two miles. Then a gradual to then steep section as we approached the 'scar' rock. Small lookout spot, then a false summit, and then a very uneventful finish at the broken tree and old marker. Nothing too exciting at the summit, but the lookout was pretty and the overall trail was nice. It went through some very distinct sections of bare trees, pines, the old bridge with awkward spacing for Finn. Cold temps in the 20's but periods of blue skies. Only ran into about 3 people and one other dog. 5 hours of driving and just under 5 hours of hiking.
