Ascent Trip Report

XC Ski outing on 6-8" of crusty snow. Sunny & warm (32+) for the time of year. Snow condition made this more difficult than it should have been. Nice, well maintained trail from Scribner Hill Road to the North of the hill. Small sign in hutch about 200' in on the left of the trail. Another trail entrance is about one mile further east on Scribner Hill road. It is more prominent and doubles as a snowmobile trail.
