Ascent Trip Report

August 24, 2013
Started up the Osceola Trail off the Tripoli road on a gorgeous day at 11:00 am
Hiking with Mom and Dad (and a lot more people too!)
The trail to Osceola is pretty easy, not very steep at all. The rather large switch-backs make the hike very enjoyable.
Reached the summit at 12:55pm and enjoyed great views!
Dad and I headed over to E. Osceola at 1:10pm while Mom decided to start down.
The trail was pretty busy at the very steep parts of between Osceola and E. Osceola. Going down wasn't bad, and coming back up the chimney was fun to do some class 3 scrambling we reached East Osceola at 1:45 pm.
Since there really isn't much to see at the summit we had a quick snack and headed back toward Osceola and arrived there at 2:30pm and were back at the parking around 3:55pm
