Ascent Trip Report

Arrived at the trailhead at 2:15 pm, signed in and started hiking. Nice gradual ascent on a well designed and well marked trail. A few of the wet spots have boards over them and one section has stairs.

Spectacular view from the firetower. Another good "bang for the buck" hike.

This was the third of the new "Tupper Lake Triad" mountains that I hiked. They chose wisely on the 3 mountains that they included!
