Tracie, my intrepid hiking partner, and I decided to go hike to Battleship Mountain on this lovely day. This was my first time up to Battleship, although this was Tracie's third time.

We started and ended the hike at the First Water Trailhead. The hike out on the Second Water Trail was OK, but it got a bit long on the way back.

I enjoyed the climbing once we made our way to Battleship -- there were a couple of 8-10 foot climbs where it was a little tricky to find handholds and footholds, but other than that I encountered no issues on the hike...this is one that I will do again!

I was surprised at how few cars were at the trailhead -- both in the morning when we arrived and in the afternoon when we left -- on this beautiful Saturday. Perhaps the rabid fox scare is keeping people away.
