10/15/14 Tunk Mountain



Cloudy but 60's and supposed to rain the next two days so we wanted to get in a good one today.

We started from the trailhead off Myrick Pond Rd. To get too it you have a walk up a road that is worse then the one that got you to where you parked. Near the trailhead is a  small pond


The trail starts as an old woods road before becoming a single track.


and is a steady climb to the ridge but has no difficulties for Kelley. When you come out of the woods onto the ridge you suddenly have nice views


There were also some pretty leaves



Though we have done this hike many times we missed a sort of path over to the other side of the mountain.

Tunk Mt. Trail View  10-15-14


A section of the trail along the ridge


We hiked to where the trail turns down to the ponds and then returned the way we had come.The ridge part has a couple of spots Kelley needs to work around but nothing really difficult. More leaves on the way down





Of course we stopped at the pond on the way out and while Kelley was in the water I walked back to see if I could get a better view



A nice hike with comfortable temps , views, and fall colors. 2  1/2 hours
