Ascent Trip Report

Did the well-known loop on Mount Major. The Mount Major Trail was packed so well that I barebooted all the way up. There was a good view from the summit, and I shared it with some other hikers and snowmobilers. I used microspikes on the descent down the Boulder Trail, which was hairy in spots even with the spikes. All in all, it was a good day spent on the trails.
