After doing Sunset Vista Trail and having a cone at DQ I came back and did the Hunter Trail. The road to the Trailhead (Barrett Loop) was blocked off due to damage from rainstorm. It has a ton of rocks all over it that got washed down the mountain. Basically you park down by the restrooms and walk up.

The Hunter Trail wasn't as badly damaged as was the Sunset Trail. However there is one section in the middle that took a heavy hit. It is at that spot that the trail no longer exists. Also down the back chute from the saddle was fairly eroded. Otherwise not bad at all.

It was warm and humid out there so I went to the top. Then I came down and headed back over to DQ for round two of the Cherry Dipped Cone. This time I added a Lemonade Chiller. After that it was back to the Hunter for a second trip up.

My break time above is 20 minutes to DQ and back and about 1 minute at the summit on each of the two trips.

I had intentions of doing Sunset Vista a second time as well but it was just too warm and wet out there. I probably saw 15 to 20 people between 8am and 2pm. Not bad for a hot September day.
