Ascent Trip Report

Took unmaintained trail listed on map up this peak. Required some slight bushwhacking as trail faded out. Caught main trail as it neared the first view point. Awesome wide open views of Kyoto. Saw 1 fox on ascent and 3 on descent. Of course there are hundreds if not thousands of deer throughout the entire park. Family waited at highest temple for me to bag this due to being on our feet all day. Even managed to get a blister myself.
