Ascent Trip Report

Had friends hike it in the morning, so I knew the trail was tracked out after ~2' of snow the weekend before.

15:45 - Parked at the parking lot at the end of W Union St. There were a few cars there. I suspect they were dog walkers as it was late in the day to start hiking. The beginning trails were well tracked out by dog walkers and day hikers. Eventually, the trail became single track packed by snowshoes and bare booters.
17:18 - Passed the radio tower. followed the road around to the summit parking lot
17:23 - Summit (building/parking lot). Took a few quick pics as the final light disappeared and pulled my headlight out. It was rather breezy so I quickly headed back down the road past the tower info the woods.
18:13 - Back at the car (very quick descent)
