Route: Warbler Trail, Summit Trail

In the non ski season, the Warbler Trail (C signs) follows gravel access roads from between the Snowdon Triple and Snowdon Quad to just prior to the Canyon Quad, then bee lines up to the Peak Stairway. Trail was generally dry with good footing. One has to be aware of downhill mountain bikers on multi use portions, but not an issue tonight after hours. This route is on par with the Saddleback ski trail route for being perhaps the easiest NE4K approach. Nice sunset from the summit.
