Ascent Trip Report

A pleasant hike. Very easy trail on USFS land. The drive up the 66 road is car compatible. I arrived just as another party was leaving. Trail is well maintained with only 3 large logs to go around for Elvis. It's re-growth forest but fairly open and nice for most of the trip. The last push to the summit is a little more open and rocky. There are views of several volcanoes from the top with Adams looming large. The HP is clearly close to the top at the old LO area. This would make a nice early or late season hike. No snow at all on the peak which is amazing for February. Maybe 5 miles or so and 2000 feet of gain.
