Yesterday Dogman, Trudy, Spanky, Jake and I did a 12-13 mile (5:30) bushwack. Estimate of total elevation gain is about 5,000'. We hit:
The route out was bushwacked because except for the trail up Devil's Hill, none of these summits have trails. Technically Hooker Mtn does, to the first peak, but the trail rises on the other side and we didn't hit it until within a few minutes of the main summit.
The return trip was all on snowmobile trails, forest roads, and for the last 5 miles, town-maintained roads.
For scale, Mac Mtn is about 2,400'
All these are covered in hardwood below 1500' w/ stands of fir at all elevations. We tackled this now while the woods are still open. In another month this trek couldn't be done w/out x-ray vision.
The weather and scenery were beautiful.
Pics to come tonight.
