Ascent Trip Report

I didn't think a hike this short and easy would offer much in terms of views, but for the small amount of physical energy invested, it really has a nice payoff. Including the 8 minute break in the tower to take some pictures, the hike took me 20 minutes total. The trail is just a gravel road that I assume is used to access the radio equipment near the summit. Just a quick little side trip on my way back home and #20 for me in the Fire Tower Challenge.
