Ascent Trip Report

All that is left of the lookout is the foundation, which serves as a nice bench to eat on. There is a lookout association which maintains a canopy just off of the summit.

There is quite a bit of poodle dog bush in the area, but it is not a problem if you stay on the road. The church group chose not to follow the trail because they felt that the poodle dog bush encroached on the trail too much.
