9/12/14 Black Mt. Cliffs

Another beautiful hiking day- mostly sunny with temps in the  upper 50's to lower 60's. Also a bit breezy. I don't think this map contains all the trails and has always been a bit confusing to me.

Near the start

This trail starts just out of the parking lot as you head toward the beach. The first part is a nice woods walk

but soon becomes much more rigorous - steep with many sections of large rocks to get over.

Kelley had several work around's and one place she needed a hand. Once you reach the ridge it becomes an easy and pretty trail

with some views

The trail down the other side is a nice woods path without the rocks and less steep.

When we got to the beach we thought we had it to ourselves

 but when we walked to the end we met a lone woman camper sitting at a table reading. Because of the wind there were very small waves but Kelley does not like waves of any size and so didn't get very excited about the pond

We had a little lunch and then headed up the path to the parking area. A nice hike  2 hours


  1. You take the best photos of bugs! Looks like a very nice hike - I liked the last photo of Kelley in the water. She looks very happy.

    1. Thanks Linda- not many bugs around now- the end is near - 42 when I got up this morning. It was a nice hike.
