Ascent Trip Report

Summited this mountain on my fifth and final day of an 80 mile Foothills Trail thru-hike. The trail isn't too steep to the summit and in places it's quite a nice leisurely hike. There is also an excellent viewpoint on the left side of the trail as you are traveling east about 1.5 miles before you get to Table Rock State Park.
