Ascent Trip Report

Had a little trouble finding the trailhead for this one. There was no sign at the place I started. Since we weren't certain we were on actual trail (I was using trails marked on an older topo map) we took a faint trail that connected to another trail that eventually led to the cairn and sign marking the highpoint. Humid day. At the trailhead there was a guy with a dog skateboarding on the dirt road (the dog was skateboarding!). Great picnic lunch, then went on to the actual summit, and on the return hike took a slightly different route that actually came to some trail signage.
