Ascent Trip Report

Solo hike on Scarface Mountain. It was mostly wet, and muddy in some spots. The trail was very flat through a pine forest, then steepens upon approach. There was significant blow down in one area that made the trail a little difficult to find. Saw the biggest toad I have ever seen in my life. No views from the summit, but I found a couple openings on the trail for pictures. There was a lot of bear feces in the area too.
