Car camped at the trailhead to get an early start. I didn't get much sleep as the dogs stayed up all night, but we were on the trail before 5 AM. This hike reminds me of a mini Icehouse Canyon trail. Parts of the trail/road are steep with less than perfect footing. Having a trekking pole is definitely a plus on this trail. Coming down wasn't as bad as I thought it might be, although I did a little skiing. The area near the summit is very nice. Tall pines, windy. Views along most the trail are good too. Great workout hike.
