Ascent Trip Report

Started at Anthony Wayne PA, took white trail to West Mntn NW Lookout, then right on Blue towards West Mntn. The views along this trail are great with viewpoints all the way. I took the yellow trail to check out the shelter which seems awesome but has a hole in the roof. Returned to the S-BM trail and headed To the Cat's Elbow. Very nice view as well. took this Red trail back to the ski trail for the return to the car. Took 2 hikers back to the Bear Mntn Inn. I encountered these two near the Cat's Elbow when they asked me if I knew where I was. They were pretty far off their mark and their map(pamphlet from the inn). Lot's of people out today. Beautiful weather.
