Ascent Trip Report

This trail was pretty confusing. Followed the orange markers. They changed to purple, then stopped. Found a couple blue blazes on the trees. Used compass and bushwhacked back to the markers. Some tricky rocky areas. At the summit, found orange markers back down the other side of the loop, but lost them again. Good thing I marked a waypoint on my GPS for my car because the markers led me about .2 mi from the parking area. There were a couple of signs saying "pond" and "summit" but the summit signs stopped. Nice views, sun was setting through the clouds and it looked cool.
