Ascent Trip Report

mount carmel itself really has no views, unless you're tall enough to see above the trees while standing on a rock. really the only reason to go there is to bag the peak. all the views are to be found on skinner ridge and devil's peak. see my devil's peak trip report for more info.

other trip reports suggested the trail has some bushwhacking, but that wasn't my experience. it's clear enough to allow easy passage, but sure a few branches get in the way here and there.
