6/10 11 Beech Mountain

A beautiful day- sunny, down in the 70's, and a nice breeze to keep the bugs down. We started from the pumping station parking lot and climbed the West Ridge Trail to the summit

Long Pond from the trail

Fire tower ( closed) on Beech summit.

Yet more lichen

From the summit we hiked down to the Beech parking area and picked up the Valley Trail, which we took back to Long Pond where we had our lunch. A very pleasant jaunt-2 hours


  1. Nice variety of views, and the air is so clear. It is hazy here in S.E. Michigan today.

  2. Thanks. It was a beautiful day.
