Route: Unknown trail

On the ascent, the trail was mostly dry and in good shape. A few minor muddy areas. There is logging in progress about 1 mile in, disturbing the trail for maybe a quarter of a mile or so. Trail is marked with flagging tape, though. Near the top of the logging, trail pops out onto a gravel logging road, then continues uphill on the road briefly to a height of land, then leaves the road, crosses a logging cut, and re-enters the woods.

Nice views generally east from a viewpoint about half a mile before the summit, as well as from the summit ledge.

Skies opened up on the descent, complemented with the sound of thunder, making things a little wet.
