Ascent Trip Report

The trail follows the creek with numerous crossings as it skirts around scenic cliffs. Some of the crossings are a bit tricky. Climbs gradually for first two miles (700 feet gain), then more steeply.More downed trees than last time slowed me down. Stopped at the meadow, usually a nice spot to find Chanterelles; lots of other mushrooms this tiem but almost no edibles.
