Ascent Trip Report

Third stop on our fire tower challenge day. Had no problems finding the trailhead. We opted for snowshoes on this 3.8 mile roundtrip and made great time up and down. We kept our pace above what I'd consider a normal hiking pace, but we wanted to add one last peak on the day and we'd be fighting sunset. Uneventful ascent and descent otherwise. Fire tower on the summit was well maintained and offered awesome views. The overcast clouds had burned off just a bit at this point, so our views of the winter peaks were pretty sensational.
