Ascent Trip Report

There is a well graded road from Blue Mt Parkway with a sign so it is a no brainer. There was about three inches of snow on the road so it made it interesting and good thing we had 4x4. If it were dry you could go up in almost any car. The tower is high enough to be scary with snow and ice on the stairs and howling wind. I clocked it at over 8 miles from the highway to the top.
