On Saturday morning we headed to the parking area near the Great Hill fire tower. From that parking place there are three different directions we can go depending on how busy it looks nearby. The fire tower is a popular walk, but when we arrived that day the parking area was empty, so we headed up the hill.
It’s about fifteen minutes, mostly straight up hill.
But the views are a great payoff.
And there’s lots to sniff -plenty of people bring their dogs up here.
The walk-up is challenging, but not nearly long enough. So we wandered down the hill in big arcs on snowmobile trails, and walked back up the AMC Road to the parking place.
And when we got there, I realized that we had just barely beat the crowd.
I like it when we beat the crowd.
