Ascent Trip Report

So we parked by the gate on Muriel Lane and proceeded up the hill. The day was pleasant and cool. The trail was strewn with cool green rocks. So after walking for some time we came upon the cell towers and a building called a Rainbarn. The Rainbarn was approximately two stories tall and it had siding made from the bark of trees. We continued up the hill enjoying the fresh scent of the air until we came upon an opening near the HP. The view was beautiful including various channels, bays and islands. We had to a bit of searching in some bramble to locate the HP which was also located near a geocache full of odd trinkets and a summit register. It was a lovely hike.
