Ascent Trip Report

Today I hiked Friday and Balsam Cap with the Catskill 3500 club. It was a beautiful day; perfect for hiking! The hike leader took us on a herd path with switch backs up Friday. A very nice hike with lookout points at the top.

We then moved on to hike up Balsam Cap where we had lunch at the viewpoint after signing in at the canister.

Nice day!
