For my second 4000-footer, I decided to attempt Mt Osceola and/or Mt Tecumseh. I thought I could park along Tripoli Rd and do both in one day. The Mt Osceola trail from Tripoli Rd is reported to be very easy, compared to my last trip up East Osceola.

The weather has been getting colder, so I was not planning on doing an overnight. Nevertheless, I took my backpack to hold extra clothing in case it rained, or it got colder than I expected. The pack weighed about 15 lbs, including water.
