October 2022- If you are heading up this trail, please take a new jar for the summit register. There is a broken peanut butter jar at the base of the watch tower, next to the stone wall.

Driving to the trailhead was easy. A normal car could do it but would have to dodge some deep potholes in the first mile from the highway. I started out at first light. It was 45° and blowing 15 – 25 mph. I wore my down coat all the way up and most of the way down. I worried a little about a tree falling on me. I didn’t stay put in any place I heard moaning from the trees. There was a recently fallen tree about 6 inches in diameter across the trail at a switch back. I was able to pull it off the trail before too much of a use-path developed around it.

In the first mile of trail, the maintenance has an unusual design. Boulders have been dumped on the uphill side of the trail in what appears to be the middle of an old two track. Seems to work to be turning an old road into singletrack. The lower half of this trail is soft and smooth. The upper half is more rocky, but I have never seen a trail with such a uniform grade all the way from bottom to top.

I took a break at the cabin and looked in the windows. Within the cabin, there is an ammo can containing a logbook for visitors, but unfortunately, the front door is chained, so I couldn’t sign the log.

Birds noted: White Breasted Nuthatch, common raven, hawk (not sure which one), Clark’s nutcracker (many of them).
