Ascent Trip Report

From Beetree Gap, follow the MST westbound for 0.1 miles. When the MST turns L, stay straight on the Snowball Mtn Trail for 0.5 miles to the crest. Then turn L on an overgrown path and follow the ridge about 50 yards to the overgrown HP. No views from the top, though there are supposed to be good views further on the trail toward Little Snowball.
