Ascent Trip ReportThis trail was better than I expected- I had read that the initial section, through a bog, was a pain, but now there are nice bridges over all the bad areas. I was shocked at the crowds- granted it was Sunday- but there had to be over 100, perhaps over 200, people, and even about a dozen dogs on the trail.
The views from the summit were awesome!
