Ascent Trip Report

5.29.2018 about 71F when I started and 82F by noon. I parked on Glidden Rd where the pavement meets dirt and hiked straight up Glidden logging road for about 1.25 miles, I saw newtes eveywhere, until I came across Dave Robert's quarry trail. Took this trail to the left to summit West Quarry trail ( I did take the alternate route heading to W. Quarry to avoid the ledges. Not sure if it was necessary but I was solo so I thought it to be a prudent choice. )then back tracked and hiked Rand Mt, then Mt.Klem proceeding to the "Mt.Klem & Mt.Mack loop" to Mt.Mack which for a large part was a double wide trail, then continued on the loop back to mt Klem then back tracked to mt. Rand and legged it to my car. Trails are very well marked and well maintained. Entire trip took 3 hr 45 min. A few muddy areas but not bad. Great hike! Lady slippers are out and blue berry bushes have flowers. Bring bug spray and sun glasses for areas that are not tree covered.
