I have lived in this area all my life and have never climbed this hill until today. My son had just bought new boots and wanted to break them in and we decided to do this hill.
It was an easy going walk up to the summit, the views opened up as we gained height and it was a treat to sit on the top and soak in the surrounding views.

Nice to see a report of my closest-to-home Marilyn. :)
Did this one for the first time in 2009 myself.
