Ascent Trip ReportA fine hike through the woods to a lovely viewpoint. We arrived from our Dorst Creek campsite at the trailhead at 07:00 just as a horde of noisy college students descended en masse from a dawn ascent. In contrast we saw no-one else on the 2.7 mile trail or on the summit but did see Sooty Grouse at close quarters.
