Ascent Trip Report

we chose to hike the short summit nature trail rather than driving up to the summit car park (it's not a full drive up, you still need to climb the summit hill). although it's hard to forget you're on a ski hill, the nature trail does a good job of featuring the local scenery, and includes numerous informative signs.

the summit features a fire lookout beside which we found the first register of this trip. views of the surrounding mountains were excellent.
