Last Sunday (4/18/21) I went birding out along the Sch Cyn-Little Badger Loop. It was a hot day and great hike. Somewhere around 8 mi and a 1850 or so total elevation gain.
The rest of the trail was open with just a few logs to step over.
Finn, listening to a Northern Pygmy-Owl I was chatting with.
Up at the junction of Sch Cyn and Little Badger.
My attempt at a group pose.
Great views up into the Badger Wilderness
Finn at the mine entrance.
Both Joy and Finn dove into the water, long hot hike so far.
I cut up hill about .5 miles from the Little Badger Trail Head. Any where there is a game trail or clear shot up through the trees. When you get up the hill from the creek, you see this. Just follow the contour. Any place you drop down, you are going to need to climb back up.
The hillside back up to the School Canyon Trail
The final dash up to the elevation of the Sch Cyn Trail. Not a bad climb, I switched back and forth a bit.
Overall a great day.
My ebird checklist for the two trails:
