Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from the gate just beyond the Hot Springs with my husband and two dogs (labradors). At the cabin, we crossed the creek through the brush and ascended the hill to the south of the creek. Mosquitoes were horrendous but the wildflowers were plentiful. It was brushy and overgrown terrain, making it rough for the dogs. I didn't have a specific route in mind, we just followed what looked like the best line as we ascended. Just wanted to keep moving to keep the mosquitoes at bay.

When we gained the ridge we could see the summit and made a straight line for it, easy terrain along the ridge and fantastic views down DeGarmo canyon.

For the descent, we followed the chute that most people seem to take. This was our first sign of use trail. It was steep and loose but much less annoying than the ascent route through brush. Mosquiotes were still terrible, though.
