Ascent Trip Report

Got to trailhead about 4 pm, with one vehicle leaving and one remaining, but didn't see anyone on this hike, and mine was the only vehicle there on return. This was good because my wife said my typical Bald Hill hike was overcrowded, though she was there an hour or so earlier. On this hike, I left the trail just past the trail high point on seeing minimum brush to walk over and again turned left on a game trail just above the main brush patch, then turned right to get to the high point on seeing open country. When I tried to get down the way after bagging Mill Hill, I somehow ended up on the trail just before the trail high point.
