1st trip
Union, Davis, and Tritle have been on my radar screen for a while, so Tracie and I decided to go out and check these 3 off of our list. I did a loop that was patterned after the Union-Davis-Tritle-Spruce Superfecta hike that Joe, Tortoise_Hiker, wallyfrack, BiFrost, and The_Eagle did on 9-15-2018. However I did not do nearly as much off-trail hiking as they did, likely costing myself a "medal".

We did the loop CCW, and went to Tritle then Union then Davis. I'd guess that 75% of the hike was on forest roads; 20% on hiking trails; and 5% off-trail. The amount of forest road hiking that we did was much more than I care for. If I did the hike again I would do it CW, and when I got up to Tritle, I'd descend off-trail on the NE side rather than looping back around on Road 52B. This would shorten the hike and cut out some of the forest road hiking.

My favorite part of the hike was the offtrail hike up to Davis. This was about an easy an offtrail hike that you can do.

We saw 2 deer and a large, plump turkey on the hike.
