Ascent Trip Report

Did a morning hike from Hwy 18 to Castle Rock, Bluff Lake, and Lookout Point. Also took a detour to check out a couple of Yellow Post sites. The trail is nice with many birds, squirrels around Castle Rock, and frogs around Bluff Lake. The first part of the trail is steep, but the rest is fairly flat. A good portion is on road but only 1 vehicle past me while I was on the roads. The Castle Rock trail was much more crowded than I expected mid-week.
