Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Gray's Peak Trailhead Parking Lot, which the park ranger said was being closed for the season starting on 01 December for Eagle Nesting. Started hiking before 7:00 AM with the temperature being a cool 34F. Followed nicely maintained trail to summit where there were great views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The trail was not too steep and was one of the better hikes, with the trail littered with oak leaves and shaded by pines.

Found and signed the register and returned along the same trail.
