Ascent Trip Report

Cantrell Creek Trail to the Laurel Creek Trail meandering around crossing over flowing streams and water courses. We crossed streams at least 7 times that day and each time the rapids from the night before were tricky in full wieghted packs. We had many folks go down in the water. A very tiring day. We did not climb to the top of this small peak as we were happy to just keep moving through all the water.
