1st trip
This hike is the third day of a four day hike in the Rincon Mountains. Trails include; Mica Mountain Trail, Spud Rock Trail, North Slope Trail, Fire Loop Trail and Italian Spring Trail. It was rather sad to see Mica Mountain with out its lookout tower. back in the late 60's we use to be able to climb to the top of it. Italian Spring does not look like it use to because of the fire that devastated much of the north slope of this mountain. Because of this fire the North Slope Trail is almost non existent in places (but still can be followed with a GPS (Map if you're low tech). For the most part the trails are easy to follow and with the maze of trails up there you can just pick your loop. In the two days I was hiking up here I was able to do loop trails that included every trail with out repeating too many of them.
