Ascent Trip Report

Ridge Trail was a still wet from the brief rain the night before. The route up is mostly stones and roots, and exposed rock. Great views at about .7 miles into hike, and again at 2 miles.

Cloud cover did not allow for any view from the top. Great hike none-the-less.

Descent was a little difficult, needed lots of hand holds and scrambling to keep your feet under you.
