Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Charlton Flats Picnic Area. Took access road to summit and talked to Forest Service volunteers manning the fire look out. They were very friendly and explained how the equipment works that they use to spot smoke or fire. There was a lot of fire damage along the trail back to the picnic grounds. The view was great. Only downside was the fire damage along the trail.
