Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Sylvan Lake TH bright and early and took the #4 trail up and the #9 down as I don't like to cover the same ground if not needed. This proved to be a great idea as #4 is considerably more scenic (in my opinion) than the #9. However, the #9 was more gradual in its elevation gain despite them both being roughly 3 miles each way. Once you reach the summit there is a neat little walkway to the a dam. The views are incredible!
