Ascent Trip Report

Good hike up good trails then up a grassy ridge that isn't too step. 6 year old Maria handled it well. I carried her bike up so that she could ride down the road on the way back. She was able to ride down almost all the way except the steepest sections. This is quite prominent resulting in an expansive view for not a lot of effort.
