Ascent Trip Report

NF 9712 deteriorated fast after the junction with spur 270 at about 5000 ft. I needed 4wd and high clearance to make it to the Old Lookout Trailhead. The trail had some snow patches and lots of gooey slippery mud. Adams, Rainier, Stuart, and Glacier all on display with a couple hundred others.
