A little warmer ( 11 degrees ) but sunny and little wind. This is a trail we had done in the past - both winter and summer but not yet this year. I could not find a map so adapted another to show where we started and where we headed. I could not plot the actual route or how far we got.
We started from the Frye Mt. Game Management parking lot and after a brief section of woods we crossed the road and started up a hill past an apparently abandoned house.
The trail briefly follows an unused logging road and then into the woods
This trail is a real workout with a series of hills and few flat sections
It had been awhile since we did this trail and I thought we had reached the top of something
But the trail swung left and up another hill - looking back down from near the top.
When we reached a point where the trail again dropped down
I decided I did not want to climb back up it and we turned around. Some shots of sections of the trail on the way back
and the logging road near the end
A beautiful day and mostly peaceful as we were only passed by one pair of snowmobiles and then one was starting out as we came to the end. Kelley seemed happy with the hike and not bothered by the hills- I was tired. 2 1/2 hours
