Ascent Trip ReportWe took advantage of the beautiful autumn day and summited the small mountain via the trail that begins along State Route 28 between Indian Lake and Blue Mountain Lake. Pretty nice view to the west from the rocky ledge beyond the summit area. Bushwhacked a hundred yards or so to the tree covered true summit and then returned via the same route.
