Joseph and I wanted to get back to the Two Elk Trail, now that it has reopened. So we decided to hike over from our Motel via the powerline trail, the connecting to Mini Mile Trail. Initially I wanted to hit a junction over to Cougars Ridge however there was no trail and it would have been a bushwhack, so we did the modified out and back with a lunch stop at Kirby Cosmo's BBQ Bar.
Hike was cut short due to a seasonal closure for migrating elk and deer. It was beautiful, we will return after June 30.
average hiking speed 2.79 mph
