Ascent Trip Report

I was disappointed that the "summit loop trail" didn't reach the summit. From the road at the top, I headed south until the far parking lot, then took the south ridge to the summit. From there, I noticed that the west ridge was a far easier and more direct route, so I descended that route.

There was an incredible diversity of wildflowers on the trails.
