Hamilton Mountain 4.11.17

Post by zombie » April 12th, 2017, 6:41 pm

Just a little look-see at Hamilton for everyone. Jgrugan74 had said on Monday that the trail repairs were complete (or at least good enough shape), so I headed up the following morning. Beside the usual mud-pit condition in the Rodney Falls section of trail, everything was coming along just fine. The trail along Hardy Creek leading to Ed's Cutoff was also doing well. There were a total of maybe 5 blowdowns back there and only one that wasn't an easy stepover...I imagine they will be cleared up in to time. Here are some pics!

Wow, they really gave Hamilton the Saddle Mountain treatment. Seems a bit much, but I must admit I'm looking forward to seeing it.
Weird seeing your summit pic. Seems like just a few weeks ago it was buried in snow.
