This is a fun hike! I wish I could tell you how great the views were, but it was cloudy and drizzly, with some wind today.

Trail: gradual ascent until you hit the sign that says Peak and you start up a sharper incline along a Ridgeline at times. Not hard, but my pants and hiking boots were soaked so I think the extra weight made it more of a challenge, haha.

If it wasn't so far from where I live, I would hike this often. Fun trail that had bits of snow along trail and some at peak.

Ammo box to sign in at summit. Cold, wet, rainy, but I had a blast!!

    Was there any ice on the trail? Did you use microspikes or feel that they would have helped?

      I didn’t. The only place that had any significant snow, and that is a bit of a stretch was at summit. I was in my regular hiking shoes with trekking poles; never felt unsafe during entire hike. I was just wet 😊
