Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful day for a hike - cool temps and clear skies were wonderful today. My wife and I hiked up Flat Top from the north side on the Flat Top Trail. The trail has some recently added gravel down low; higher it is rocky but generally in good shape. We made it up in 1 hr 18 minutes; coming down was only about 2 minutes faster. Spent plenty of time enjoying the views on top. Minor scramble at top to get to the best views.
