5 of us left the valley early this morning for a long drive / day hike to Aztec Peak via Abbey's Way. Some of my crew had read some of Abbey's works which added some extra interest for our hike to the fire tower he manned for a few years. Most of the 288 is paved up to the 487 turn off. It's still slow going with tight turns and no guard rails. FS 487 has been recently graded and open all the way up to the fire tower. We parked near the 151 trailhead (there is parking available at the trailhead, but it is easy to miss). Abbey's Way was super fun with a trek through a tall grassy meadow and slightly overgrown section through the burn area. I brought my machete along but didn't need to use it. Views from the top are impressive as is the Fred Flintstone picnic area. We followed the road back down. We had a chat with another forest visitor who just had a large black bear circle his truck. We didn't see the bear, but did get to watch the video he took of it on his phone. Saw a coatimundi on the 288 heading back towards Roosevelt lake. It was too quick to catch a picture though. Wish I lived closer to this area, it's fantastic! Lunch at Porter's Cafe in Superior afterwards, delicious!
