Ascent Trip ReportStarted out at 10:45 am on a not so wonderful day. Rain/Thunderstorms predicted throughout the day. Since these peaks don't offer great views, doing them on a not so good day is OK.
Started out with Mom and Dad on the Hancock Trail off the Kanc Hwy.
Reached the Cedar Brook Trail at 11:30. It's a bit wet from last nights rain, but not muddy at all. The trail is cut back pretty wide - no rain yet!
We got to the N/S Hancock loop Jct at 12:30 - now the climbing begins!
Mom decided she would skip the steep part. Dad and I caught several other hikers as we headed to the summit.
Reached the summit of N. Hancock at 1:30 pm
We had a rather quick lunch at the lookout as the rain rolled in. We headed for S. Hancock at 1:50 as the rain started.
We reached S. Hancock at 2:30, no real views and now it is raining so we kept going. Took us 20 minutes to get down the steep part and then we were back at the car at 4:30.
