Ascent Trip Report

i followed retemeyer's track, although i did the loop in the other direction. excellent trail, nice views, enjoyable hike.

although the sign for the road up to the lake says "4x4 required" it really didn't seem difficult, and there were a couple minivans up there. the road is rocky, so just take care with the tires.
