Ascent Trip Report

Regarding where to leave the Mill Hill Loop Trail on the north side of Mill Hill -- on my fourth try, I found what I believe is the easiest route to the summit: continue over the trail high point going West and down the trail a few dozen yards, leaving the trail on the far side of a thick patch of brush, going uphill where it wasn't very brushy, then continuing to the left around and above that thick patch of brush, and finally turning uphill to the right where it's relatively open country to the top.
