Panther Mountain

The trail starts climbing right away with tall pines towering over you. The trail then swings west to reduce the grade a bit and then back to the east to gain a small ridge that brings you to the partially open summit. From the summit area the Seward Range can be seen to the south, and Panther Pond below.
