Ascent Trip Report

This is a great short hike with amazing views being your reward for climbing the 172 stairs to the fire lookout. Not for those with a fear of heights. The stairs are wooden and can sway if the winds picks up too much. The Forest Service fire lookout at the top was very friendly and answered all my questions. Great experience.
