There are a couple of trees down across trail, as written in the trail description for Dickerman. Other than these small steps over, the trail is clear and wonderfully maintained! No special gear needed.
Distance was about 4.2 miles to tippy top, and took me about 2.5 hrs up. Stopped/slowed down to enjoy the many flowers, webs, and moody views.
Hiked through clouds, rainy downpour, and brief loud thunder. When I got to the top I was treated to calm, surreal cloud inversions!!
Thank you to the kind souls who found my lost item and placed on my car! I love trail friends. :-)
