Ascent Trip Report

50+ degree day in December. Got to trailhead at 3:30pm so a quick hike was necissary to avoid coming down in darkness. The final section of trail (0.2 miles at top) had just been opened again on Monday 12/7 after the big game season finished.

Trail was difficult to follow due to fallen leaves covering ground, otherwise would have been very simple. HUGE fire tower at top with decent views of sunset. Ran back down while I still had light.
