Ascent Trip Report

$5 per adult day use fee. followed tom gathright's track.

the trail is a real ankle workout for the first half mile, with loose rocks anywhere from thumb-sized to foot-sized. thereafter it is sometimes great, and sometimes a little rocky, but generally not as bad as that first half mile.

aside from the haze, the views were great.
