Ascent Trip Report

Extra credit hike on way back to remote camping backwoods. Parked and hiked up. For a designated place on a USGS map with a trail and supposed facilities this was a dump, poor views, poor maintenance, and poor hike but it was extra credit. Trail to top.

Note my GPS malfunctioned and did not recorded the entire trip so it says short stats. It was actually around 1.6 miles and 280 feet of total gain because we went down to the spring picked up the trail and hiked up and back down to the spring and back up.
