Ascent Trip Report

Up and down via the ski trail( Gray Ghost)which starts directly behind the Saddleback Ski area lodge. Pretty well defined herd path up the trail which continues to the end of the ski trail near the top. Path continues to the right of a small building till meeting up with the AT in a few hundred yards. Turn left on the AT and summit Saddleback and then continue on 1.7 miles along a mostly open ridge going over a couple false summits to The Horn. Took me just a bit less than 2 hours for the return from the summit of The Horn back to my car. Saddle back is a great hike and the first time I have climbed a mountain other than Mt Mansfield with a ski area that does not dominate the summit. You hardly know the ski area is there once you are on the ridge.
