Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Dan on the way back from visiting my Dad for Father's Day. We ascended the steeper, more direct red trail. We wasted no time and we at the summit fairly quickly. We stayed at the summit for about 15 minutes. Nice views despite being overcast. The summit was VERY windy. We took our time coming down...we explored little side trails with good views to down below and we stopped at the pond for a few minutes and Dan took a quick dip. Although there were 6 other cars in the parking lot when we started, we didn't see anyone else on the trail...I guess everyone took the same loop we did. We saw a lady and later the guy and dog she was with just before the trailhead. It seems they parked down Ski Hi Road a bit and were just walking the road and flat trail along at the base.
