Ascent Trip Report

Great sunny day. Hot and humid weather, but the wind made it feel cooler. The first half of the trail may be tricky to find your way in the bushes and trees. The last half of the trail is on flat rocks on what seems to be a slowly ascending plateau. Descended through Deer Brook Trail which provided a nice loop back alongside the Jordan Pond. Great views from the surrounding at the top.
