Ascent Trip Report

Wow, the Chippewa Trail is pretty spectacular. I'm glad the 52WAV list got me there. The middle section is pretty steep, and a little slippery with all the pine needles underfoot. A few spots at the top were briefly hard to follow; blazes are wearing off the rock. Overall a really nice trail, and a perfect day with Spike. The lime kilns are worth a quick look, too.
