Ascent Trip Report

Came from Buffalo mountain and parked at the Saddle overlook. Ran the trail to the top. Nice view from teh big drop off enar the top. The cabin was under construction so I couldn't get a very close look. This could also be done by parking at the Rocky Knob overlook to the north of the info center and turnoff for the picnic area. This would be slightly longer and would add 180' of climb. I had planned on running over and back but already had too much mileage for the day, so I settled for less than 1 mile rt.
