This is a well-used, highly-trafficed trail.  There is plenty of parking, but you may want to get to the trailhead early as the parking lot does fill up.  There are restroom facilities at the trailhead, but they may be seasonally open.  The summit has a hand rail that can be used for antenna guy lines.


Station Details:  K2 with SSB and 100 W options, and Buddi-Stick on 20 meters.  Guy lines and counterpoise set up at southern end of summit away from sitting bench.  SWR across voice portion of band was 1.3-1.2 with set up near metal handrailing.
