Comments
Comments: Short downhill road walk to driveway for #169. Trail is signed and turns off to the right just before a bridge. Starts out fairly moderate but becomes pretty steep for about 2/3's of the way to the summit. Much of the trail was bare but ground frozen solid. Barebooted up, bushwhacking to the right of the ledgy area about .25 miles from the summit ledges. Old cabin and tower at top. Cabin a nice shelter for a break before making our descent. A steep, short hike of just less than a mile. Used spikes for our descent.
