I was short on time, but wanted to get out and enjoy the fall foliage. We parked at the Lake Skanatati trailhead, and took the A-SB Trail up and veered off to the old route up to the top of the mountain and the view. We then bushwacked down to the Long Path, and went alongside Lake Skanatati and then back to our car.
