Ascent Trip ReportStarted at the Gooseberry trailhead off FR 193 and took the Gooseberry Springs Trail to the summit and back.
The trail was never steep, and it went through a nice forest down low and crossed over several open grassy slopes up higher. Still some snow near and at the summit, but it wasn't anything I needed traction for. Excellent 270-degree views from the top, particularly of the old crater and lava dome remains.
