With the yearly blast furnace on the way, I figured it would be a good time to sneak in a quickie out on this cool trail. I arrived about 6am and there was already a good number of kayakers and water boarders setting up. Quite a few fishermen out near the start as well.

This trail is the same as always. Nice views of the lake at the first 3 viewpoints, then a turn towards Burro Cove. The trail needs a little trimming along a few sections, especially the first little bend where it dips down past Peregrine Point. But, it’s still a well worn and easy to follow path all the way.

I hiked out to the viewpoint of Burro Cove and then out to the “shore access” area by Ship Rock. This is where I came across the first hikers of the day. They were going back. Must have started at sunrise? I started back myself from here.

Going back at ran into more and more hikers. I’d guess 8-10 parties in total. The lake was getting busy as well. Tons of jet skis, power boats and kayaks/boards. As I turned the last little view area, I could see the beach at Butcher Jones was pretty full. Lots of people enjoying the beauty all around.

I finished up in just over 2 hours and managed to beat the heat. An excellent Sunday morning all the way around.
