Ascent Trip Report

Made the trip in the morning. Overcast skies but generally warm and a little muggy. A few other cars in the parking lot. The short walk to the summit was uneventful. The lookout tower was closed for maintenance so I could not climb up and have a view. The USGS benchmark is located on some rocks about 10 feet from the base of the tower on the left side when facing it from the approaching trail. Pleasant but the lack of a view from the summit was a bit disappointing.
