|A good loop that few will try. Other Mingus loops rank higher. This one has plenty of character. I'd guess 40% or more is along or under tree cover. Most will leave with memories of pines. Gamble Oak has a solid presence for autumn foliage opportunity.|
1 hour in we passed a rafter of turkey hens. Neither of us captured one for the annual 4-H county fair exhibit.
#550, #549 and west #503A offer pleasant hiking. Best-of destination slayers might ponder if options run low.
In addition to countless redos we have a reason to try and loop up Mingus. However, no trace on satellite. FR500E needs to be utilized in a Woodchute Loop too.
