Tracie, my intrepid hiking partner, and I decided to make our first ever hike on the Abineau-Bear Jaw Loop. We also added an aborted hike up to Rees Peak.

We did the loop clockwise, and when we got to the intersection of the Bear Jaw Trail and Waterline Road, instead of turning on Waterline, we continued south and made an off trail scramble up to Rees Peak. We got about 60% of the way to the top, and then it started raining and thundering, so we decided that it would be best to abort the hike up to the top of Rees, so we descended back down to the Waterline Road. It was a fairly steep climb up to Rees -- we went up 900' in about 0.7 miles. However, the climb was not bad and the descent was a piece of cake.

I am not a real big fan of the loop -- it was OK, but there are better hikes in the area imho. The highlight of the hike for me was the scramble up to Rees Peak. I plan to go back and do this hike again in late September, and go up to the Rees summit, and maybe also go up to Aubineau Peak.

The forest road to the trail head was in better shape than I thought that it would be -- we came in from Highway 89 and Tracie's Outback made it just fine.
