Ascent Trip Report

Followed old jeep trail. Google Maps shows jeep trail going to the top of the peak, but this is sort of a misnomer, as the main trail goes past the peak to the telescope observatory.

There was a bit of snow at places, nothing tennis shoes couldn't handle. At the peak, fallen timber was everywhere; felt like walking on matchsticks.

There were no signs on the way up indicating it was unlawful to hike to the top. Saw two endangered Mount Graham squirrels.
