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.

8/30/14 Tunk Mountain

Another nice day- sun with clouds coming and 60's again. The last time we tried to do this one the deer flies were so thick we didn't even get out of the car. Today two found Kelley at the start and after I killed them we saw no more- also no mosquitoes. This is one of three ways up Tunk and the easiest for Kelley.

A peak off to the side on the way up

This is a fairly steady, not too steep, uphill until you reach the ridge

The trail is fairly level along the ridge, in and out of woods, until you reach the trail heading down to the ponds. At that point we turned around and headed back.

Some shots of the trail along the ridge and views from it.

I found this tiny flower ( about 1/2 inch) near the end

Turned out to be a nice hike in spite of not a lot of water- there is a pond off the road you walk to the trail head and then one small stream on the trail- nothing up above. She was still enthusiastic and think she liked that it was quite breezy up top. Kelley had to drink the water I carried- she prefers to find her own. She was very happy when we got back down and she could get in some water. 2  1/2 hours
