Ascent Trip Report

Logged this peak from the summit.
This hike is beautiful. Park your car at the base outside the gate and walk towards the glass school sign and walk the logging road till you hit a fork with a right turn to a gate. Follow that road, and you will hit another fork but you can go either way because it forms a loop. We went straight and then eventually turned left from the logging road on to a nice trail in the snow so I don’t no how it looks in the summer but well maintained to the summit. Snow was very solid and never more than 4" deep.
Please follow the rules and preserve access to this private tree farm. No horses or mountain bikes on trails in the winter. Fill out the liability forms and send them in before you hike. James sent them in about a week and a half ago with some money as a donation to contribute to trail maintenance. Please either donate money when you mail in the form or at the metal box at the trailhead. We saw MTB tracks on the single track trail below the summit. Don't be that person that breaks the rules and ruins it for everybody!
