Ascent Trip Report

Of note, the trailhead has been moved to start earlier than Ken's track previously shows, adding about 3/4 mile each way. Still well posted, and lots of areas to camp at the start point. The trail I found was in good shape, well signed and get's good use. There were snow spots, but not bad. On the way back I took a detour and went to the old Council Mtn Lookout site, which added the additional gain.
