Ascent Trip Report

Drove up Genoa Peak Road from maintenance station at Spooner Junction to the TRT, then hiked northeast to the peak with my dog Robby. The TRT went uphill at first, very nice, but then went down, so I eventually broke off into the woods. There was some brush near the top, but the worst obstacles were many fallen trees.
