Ascent Trip Report

An easy hike under normal conditions. I had high hopes of making it a 5 mile trail run, but 50+mph winds and a snowy trail made it pretty interesting in running shoes, shorts and a light jacket. You can see the top the whole way up, so you can make your own way, but the "correct" way, as far as I can tell, is to follow the power line road up the ravine, then cross over to the peak side about 1 1/2 miles up the trail, and continue along the road to the rocky summit. Heading down, you can backtrack, or take the steep and sandy trail straight down to the town. Total distance is between 3-5 miles, depending on route down.
