Ascent Trip Report

For directions to TH, follow James Barlow's accurate turn by turn with mileage directions via his trip report. Pay close attention to the 'small' road signs. Lots of opportunities to make a wrong turn. Road conditions good enough for my Honda civic in fair weather.

Started on trail at 5PM. Met a man and his dog about 5 minutes in, the only party on the trail the entire trip. Little slow and nervous across the exposed scramble, worsened by being solo. To summit at 6:30PM and headed down quick to avoid darkness. To tree-line as darkness hit. A little harrowing with small flashlight. Trail was difficult to navigate in dark in a few places due to several downed trees over the trail. Was relieved to break through to the road and see my car at 7:45PM. On drive down mountain roads a deer jumped out and missed my car by inches.
Awesome Mountain though with great views.
