Comments
Comments: Trailhead is at the T-junction in the road directly across from the road you drove in on. Hike is entirely in the woods until coming out into the open at tree line about a half mile below the summit. Follow the cairns carefully especially at the start of the talus field to stay on the “trail” through the small boulders. I never saw anything I could identify as the location for the old Fire Warden’s cabin nor did I see the MATC tent site which I had read is at 2.6 miles. It was a beautiful day at the top with gorgeous foliage views. Although there was haze in the far distance obscuring some of the most distant peaks, Redington, Crocker, Spaulding, Sugarloaf, the tip of Avery, the southern peaks of Abraham, Saddleback and many other peaks were easily seen.
