Ascent Trip Report

Me and my 10 year old daughter went up the unknown pond trail and stayed over night at the pond which was nice but a bit muddy on the trail around the pond. The trail in was very overgrown with ferns and blackberry bushes that sraped against your legs. this was one of the most unmaintained trais ive ever been on. There was no views and very slippery trail with alot of clay to walk on. The following day we got up early and climbed up the horn and ditched our packs at the intersection to the Bulge. the to of the mountain had a great rock scramble that would be hard with a pack or small kids. But what a great view almost 360 , this was the best we were summiting as the sun came over deer ridge and it was a spectacular site.
