Ascent Trip ReportStarted at the trailhead at roughly 9:00am. The first 100 meters were the hardest and steepest of the trail. After the register it was easy-going. About 15 minutes from the summit there is an increase in fern density. In this area we also started seeing deer tracks on the trail. We hit the summit in 1 hour and 8 minutes. I attempted to climb the fire tower but the wind was strong and the swaying of the tower was not for me. I backed down. Stayed on the summit for about 20 minutes then trekked back down in 46 minutes.
