|Pine Mountain Parking Lot|
Ascending the Yellow TrailThe Yellow Trail ascent is steep and littered with rock gardens - not a biking route for sure...
|The Rocky Ascent goes on ... and on...|
|Another Glacial Erratic|
At Pine MountainOnce at the lookout, the trail mellows out (not so steep and rocky).
|At the Lookout|
|It's actually a long way down!|
|The main trail is well blazed|
|The Chimney Ruins|
On the Red TrailGoing eastward from Pine Mountain you descend a bit thru a marshy valley. I choose to head northeastward on the Red Trail.
|Yet on more enormous Glacial Erratic|
|I turned around here|
The Big Rock
I back tracked to check out a section (looking northward) with more trails. I scurried over to photograph this big rock. Very cool!!
Back on the Ives TrailI back tracked some more and turned south on the Ives Trail. It gradually ascended on a picturesque ridge
|Yep! A Glacial Erratic|
I veered of the main trail to follow a recently leaf blown biker trail. Of course now I wanna ride it!
|Strange pipes ?!|
|Back on the main trail descent|
(an old fire road)
North Side of Bennetts PondThe trail along the north side of the pond must be beautiful on a warm sunny day. Although there are some really rocky sections that would be tough to bike, other sections look awesome!
|This was my favorite stretch!|
The battery died on my phone so no more photos. I headed west and slogged up the second Red Trail then back out on the rock-strewn Yellow Trail.
