Ascent Trip Report

there seem to be many trails on this hill, some maintained, some not. on the way uphill i eventually decided a direct approach was more interesting than the meandering trail, but i would rejoin the official trail near the top. that trail goes up and over the summit, and i thought maybe it would loop back to the way i came up... not so (or at least not before i became uninterested in the trail again). i ended up having fun going down a draining with rocks and trees until i hooked up with a road that rejoined the road i walked in on.
