I hiked today with Carl and we had a great time.  We drove up the service road that the McClellan Butte trail crosses about 1.5 miles from the trail head and hiked from there.

Sadly, my Garmin misfired again so the hike looks like a 41-miler from my house to the summit and back to the car. But that’s OK, I know we did about 8 miles and 3,200 feet of elevation gain.

The trail is in great shape. There are a few little piles of snow here and there but nothing that bothered us at all.

On the way down we explored the area just south of Salmon Lake and I hung a strip of pink flagging tape as a guide to when we bushwhack up from the west.

Lots of people on the trail today, it truly is a great hike. Lots of views, lots of workout.

I am not going to link the track since it is bogus.

Looking forward to my next hike!
