Beautiful, cool day so I decided to visit the Thumb all the way from Gateway Trailhead. Fun.
Started at 6:45 am and not too crowded at all. By the time I turned off Gateway trail, I pretty much had complete solitude until I reached the turn off for the thumb. Lots of people at the thumb including some rock climbers climbing the thumb and other various boulders. Took a short break, then headed back. Quiet again until I hit the hordes of hikers on the Gateway trail. Beautiful day to be out and a great workout. South side of the Toms Thumb trail is pretty and doesn't see as many people. Great scenery.
