Ascent Trip Report

I parked on the side of Tripptown road and started a "bushwhack" using overgrown logging lanes. I eventually met up with a trail along a ridge that took me all the way to the summit. A couple spots with broken views through the trees, but nothing great. I followed the same trail all the way back to the road. Recent footprints of one hiker all the way up.
