Ascent Trip Report

Fourth of four peaks & geocaches. Sunny day warmed the snow fortunately most of the way was clear stepping. Short detour along the Dark Hollow Trail and deeper snows on the return to find Geocache Gigantor while watching the sun set. From Jessup / Sweet Clover Trail Jct down watched the valley lights lit while lighting headlamp. Taylor Road just past the Thruway and Creekside Lane on right is now the main Trailhead, other roads on maps are private.
