Ascent Trip Report

A wonderful little hike. This would make a great training mountain for anyone wanting to give hiking a try. Wonderful Hemlock forests, Hardwood forest and nice views for relatively low effort.

USE CAUTION. The water crossing can be difficult in high water. Suggest bringing dry socks and bare footing it through the river at the trail crossing.
