Ascent Trip Report

Started at upper parking lot and went up the green trail. (to find red trail must go up blue trail a 100ft or so and will see it) Hot day but good breeze and when at the top of Belknap can get great view of the area when you climb the tower.We stayed awhile and let the sweat dry some and then went down the blue trail and up the yellow to Gunstock. Sat at the picnic table and had a great view as well as watching people go up and down the chair lift. Went back down the yellow to the blue and the car. Great day, about 3 miles and 2.5 hours.
