Ascent Trip Report

Sky High Road is closed, bridge is out, at the Garnet Lake Road junction but can be regained at a 1/4 mile beyond with a sharp right onto Thurman Cross Road to regain Sky High Road (or Mountain Road) parking lot at rough end of the road. Lucky me, a local resident getting her mail at the junction clued me, many other hikers are walking the two mile road walk. Snow remains waiting some more on summit in the woods beyond rocky outlooks.
