Arrived at the TH at noon and headed down the ash creek trail. 50 yards in I encountered 2 people in hardhats swinging axes in the middle of the trail. I stopped and learned that they were with the Northwest Youth Corps (a youth development & outdoor education organization). They told me that they have been on the mountain for 2 weeks clearing trails and would be up here another 2 more. I continued down the trail stopping & meeting 5 more of their crew along the way. I just love these kinds of organizations and enjoyed talking to these very nice people.

After about an hour of talking with the trail crew, I made it to the webb peak spur and headed up. From here it was a real pretty hike up through the forest and to a nice little patch of aspens. The trail then went through a flat area before getting steeper and taking me up to the fire lookout tower on the peak. Climbed up the tower for some great views before leaving and taking the tower service road back down. I really thought the service road would be boring but I found it just as pretty as the trail up and was glad I decided on making this a loop hike. Made it down to the swift trail and after a short walk up the road I was back at my truck. I really liked this trail and will definitely be back to do it again!
