Finding Trail Descriptions

So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

10/27/13 Frye Mountain


Cold, wet, drizzly morning with a small chance of rain forecast. We only went downtown for a short walk yesterday so decided we would hike today. Some light rain on the way over but clouds and sun when we arrived and no further rain. The last time we were here we could not find the trail head which was obscured with vegetation. We thought we would find it today, with most leaves on the ground, and we did.

Some pictures of  different parts of the trail


 The Bartlett Stream was very low- there is an alternate trail for when the water is high and the stream difficult to cross.



An old stone fence running alongside the trail




We have hiked this trail several times and never met anyone. Today when we reached the summit we met a group of nice people and their dogs



They are new to the area and we talked about other nearby trails. When they heard Kelley's name they asked if I had the blog with my dog Kelley. People never recognize us until they hear Kelley's name.

As they headed down we wandered around the summit for a bit to give them time to get ahead. There are no views or fire tower as often reported but here is a tower fragment


When we came to this junction


we made the short climb to the ledge for a look and for lunch


and then back down



and onto the trail back. A pretty good hike on a mostly nice day. 3  1/2 hours
