Ascent Trip Report

Nice, easy hike. Very modest elevation climbs (only 2330’ for the trip). We saw a lot of people up there, actually 53 total people attempted to climb Cascade that day. We also bagged Porter Mountain while we were up there. The beginning of the trail did not have enough snow cover and was a little rough on the snowshoes. Charlie and I took our snowshoes off coming down once it got rocky. Should bring either Yaktrax or Micro spikes on the next hike if snow conditions aren’t the best. The temperature was very mild for a winter day (high 20s). The summit of Cascade was interesting to get to as it was completely exposed with winds of 60+ mph that were poised to knock you on your ass.
