Comments
Comments: This is a moderate hike that only gets really steep for the last .2 of the trail. 2nd half of hike is beautiful through old conifer forest and plenty of mossy trees and rocks. The summit, however, is awful. There's a HUGE cell tower on the summit and much of the view is dominated by the road up the ski resort. View to the west is very pretty, but this is easily among my least favorite NE 4,000 footers.
