Ascent Trip Report

Followed use trail which begins about 2/10 mile out City Creek Road from highway 330. (Michael VanMeter's track) The trail is a bit overgrown but relatively easy to follow, though I did loose it for a short distance on the way down in buckthorn. From Harrison summit I continued on out to the BM but did not find the BM or reference markers, just a bench and tattered American flag. The stats include the BM.
