Ascent Trip Report

Trail Head Parking was snowed in. Parked on side of road with 3 other cars. Established Trail up was broken, but rough in spots. Snow off the trail was up to 3' deep. There were snow boarders on the trail. I didn't meet them until I reached the summit cabin. Fire tower is in good shape. I took the north trail down. There was evidence of a trail in some spots, but snow filled it in in most places. I followed the ridge down, to the north. No trail markers were visible, until I hit the ski trail. This trail was not broken to the west, but the east was OK. Took a short detour to a pond, just northeast of the Indian Lake junction. Overall a fun day in the woods!
