Ascent Trip Report

Started the hike from FS Road 620 at the south end of Lost Lake. Paid the $8 for a day use permit at the Lost Lake Store just after 8am. The TH allowing the shortest round-trip distance can be found at 45.47973, -121.81454. There is limited parking along the road, but I had no issues on a Tuesday morning. Ran into several PCT thru hikers along the way. Probably the easiest 12 miles I've hiked in a long time. No issues whatsoever.
