Mark and I headed to the south side of the Goldfields to hike Peak 3134 from about a mile or so inside the Wolverine TH.

After a short road walk, we picked up a single track trail that would take us to the top of the peak. The trail is fairly easy to follow, but if you’re not sure, there are plenty of cairns augmented with some old white paint marks on some rocky sections.

The views from the top are impressive. Today we had a clear view of the Bush fire to the north. It didn’t look too bad when we arrived but it escalated quickly. As we started down, I looked back one last time and noticed that the smoke plumes were much bigger. Not good.

The trip down was uneventful. We took a slightly different route for some different views, but mostly we chatted to pass the time. A humid start to the hike was offset by cooler temps, but I actually felt more comfortable with higher temps and lower humidity at the end of the hike.

Gorgeous day. We were unaffected by the smoke north of us, but it was sad to see so much of it.
