Ascent Trip Report

We took bikes but it was a lot of work due to all of the blow downs. Only a few were cleared, even close to the trail head, although it is still early in the season so it might be a lot better later. We hit solid snow on the road at the 6 mile point. Great views from the lookout catwalk of the big peaks of the Pasayten Range to the south and the Hozameen Range to the west.
