I hit the trail early so I could do all three trails and be home in time for sleep and work. My numbers are kind of a guess except for the time.

Bill Williams is in good shape and only had five downed trees. Juniper,Oak,Pine and some Aspen towards the top with pretty good footing. I like how the Aspen leaves sprinkle the trail towards the top. Always enjoy this one.

First time on Benham and I missed my turn. I was half way to the towers before I caught it. Once on the trail I had no problem staying on it. A lot of oak on the top of this one and mostly Pine towards the bottom. Trail in good shape with a carpet of oak leaves towards the top. I saw some Bear tracks on this one. Route scout startled a Deer and a Fox. I always wonder if Route Scout will keep me from seeing wildlife. I think it might have helped this time. A few views on this one. I hiked it down and then back up to the towers. The best Aspen showing was up there.

I hiked down and up Bixler from there. There is a lot of Oak on this one with a fair amount of Pine and Juniper. A couple nice spots bedded with Pine needles or Oak leaves. The bottom of this trail gets thick and a little spooky if hiking alone. The piles of bear scat and some kind of mangled up hide didn't help. Some good views on this one. The climb towards the top wore me down and I was glad it was my last.

From there it was just down Bill Williams and back to the car. A nice variety of birds out today. Quite a few squirrels and they looked pretty healthy as did the deer and fox. I saw no other hikers the whole day. Great temps as well. A great day out on the trail! :D :y:
