Getting There

The GPS coordinates provided at the top of this page were entered into my TomTom GPS unit and it took us straight to the summit trailhead parking lot. The hike from the parking lot to the summit is only about 500 hundred yards, so its an easy there and back.

At the Summit

This was the sixth highpoint of a seven highpoint weekend. The weather was cool with rain and strong winds. We actually had the summit to ourselves for about 30 minutes. It was disappointing to not find a USGS survey marker like we had found at previous summits. Is there one and I missed it, or is this marker atop the tower all there is?
