Ascent Trip Report

Got up early and drove the 2 hours to the Seagar parking area. Left the car at 7:45am and headed up the yellow blazed Seagar trail. When I got to where a small bridge crossed the stream I left the trail and headed up the ridgeline. At times there were herd trails to follow. They were more defined the closer I got to the top, but at times they were very difficult to see. The canister wasn't too hard to find. It took me just over 2 hrs. to get to the top. Took a couple pics, took a quick break, and headed back down the same way I went up. Got back to the car at 11:45am, put on some dry clothes, and headed back to the Poconos.
