Ascent Trip Report

Found the trailhead easily and started to hike around 10:30am. The trail was about 1 miles and the incline was moderate steadily all the way up. It wasn't hard and the trail was very well maintained. At the top the steward provided a nice overview of the history of the tower. He had his two Newfoundland dogs with him. Took a tour of the caretakers cabin which was turned into a small museum. The tower was open and the views were very nice. It was a little hazy and overcast. On the way down my wife and I passed a number of people coming up including a cute 3 year old girl with her family who was almost to the top! she did a great job climbing the mountain by herself and she had lots of energy when we passed her. We walked out around 12:30.
