Ascent Trip Report

Regarding where to leave the Mill Hill Loop Trail from the north to avoid the most brush, I'd suggest 100-300 yards/meters just before (east of) reaching the trail's highest point. Leaving too early and there's a long walk picking your way up the ridge, leaving too late (near the trail high point) and there's thick brush to contend with for the first 50 yards/meters.
