Ascent Trip Report

It was Thanksgiving morning, but given that we didn't have to be anywhere until the obligatory mid afternoon meal, we went for a hike. We parked at Lost Dog Wash Trailhead and were surprised that they had people working the center giving people hiking tips and maps. There were many people out on the trail and most in large family groups. The hike offered some good views, and never got technical. There were people biking on the trail except for the last bit on the summit spur.
