With reports of the entire state being closed being greatly exaggerated, we opted for a quick overnight in the mountains with some good hiking, no crowds, and no holiday traffic. This loop fit perfectly into those requirements.

We arrived after noon and set up camp before beginning the hike, heading to Blue Jay first and then down the ridgeline in a ccw loop. The mile climb up the road wasn't as bad as I had told myself it would be, and the reward views from the West Peak lookout followed immediately by a cold beer back at camp made the road walk a distant memory.

This place doesn't seem to get much hiking traffic, and I'm ok with that! The trail is in pretty good condition.

It was surprisingly overcast and breezy with some occasional very strong gusts.
