Ascent Trip Report

First hike of the season, so started with an easy route. Began at Peck Rd trailhead elev 2052. An easy 3 miles up and a very quick return. Views were nice, got to see a hazy City of Albany in the distance from the north side of the summit. Was a nice cool day, with a beautiful breeze, which made it a hike witout breaking a sweat. Lots of rainfall made the trail very muddy and in some spots stream like.
