Ascent Trip Report

I hiked along the Loch Lomond road for awhile, then took the Continental Divide trail the rest of the way. Then I hiked down to Loch Lomond, and took the road back to the car. I started at 7:30, reached the summit at 9:45, and got back to the car just after noon. I saw fewer than ten people climbing James Peak, but there were a whole lotta vehicles parked all along the road to Loch Lomond. As I neared the summit, a helicopter landed down by Loch Lomond and stayed there for awhile.
