Ascent Trip Report

Main gate was unlocked, but at 1.7 miles, the gate to the "trailhead" was locked, so we had to walk an extra 1.5 miles each way. Ascended Butterfield from the bridge on the road over the stream that separates Signal and Butterfield. Followed a bearing 240 magnetic right up the northeast ridgeline. Hiked in mist and drizzle the entire way. Found and signed AMC trail register at summit. 2+ hours, around 2.5 miles roundtrip.
