I decided to get out and do this hike again today -- it is one of my favorite short hikes.

We started early and did not see anyone until we got almost to the top, and 4 hikers were coming down from the summit. On the way back we were less than a mile from the TH and met 2 hikers coming up. So we mostly had the place to ourselves.

Once you climbed up to the saddle that is not far from the summit, there was lots of waist high grass to plow through. It wasn't too bad, but you couldn't see the trail. We managed to persevere though.

There were the usual nice views at the summit.

I like this hike and should do it more often.
