Ascent Trip Report

Two Road closures made this ascent longer than it might have been, though only in getting to and from the trailhead. In addition to the 1.5 mile trail from trailhead to summit, we hiked the 2.5 miles of approach dirt road and a connecting section of dirt road closed to through traffic where we parked our vehicle.

The last few hundred vertical feet were mostly but not completely iced over. Construction signs posted throughout list this trail as closed due to construction of a new watchtower at the summit. As we hiked on a Saturday, no one was there to find us out.
