Ascent Trip ReportNot for the beginner hiker. 11.2 miles isn't that far, but the ascent/descent was a challege. Found two survey markers (benchmarks). Views are the best! Clear day and could see forever. Some travel along an unmaintained maintenance road and a nice, maintained trail. To make the final ascent, had to walk along a water run-off that others had used for a trail. Fairly easy to follow - just keep walking up.
