Bickford Brook Trail: no snow; no ice; dry; well marked (more)

"like a highway," one hiker said!
Lookout Loop Trail: no snow; no ice; muddy trails; poorly marked (more)

Blueberry Ridge Trail: no snow; no ice; dry; poorly marked (more)

Mostly well marked, but near the top, the cairns aren't always obvious, so you have to be paying attention!

The trail from Brickett Place starts out pretty easy; a little uphill at the beginning, but then mostly level for the first half-mile.

The group was myself, my brother-in-law George, my friend John, his step-son TJ, my friend Jeff, and my dad. What I enjoyed most about the hike were the views. I've hiked higher peaks and have had far less views than along this trail. Take the time to walk out and around the lookout loop. Keep a close eye for trail markers in this area. Also, it is hard to tell when you reach the peak of Ames Mt. You think it is a false peak, then return into dense forest and realize your at the trail split heading to Speckled Mt. We split up a bit on the descent. We were told by the ranger that the Bickford Slides were a great place to swim. I didn't actually see them myself (I was trailing behind with my dad), but George said they were pretty much a death trap. If he says that, they probably are, because he'll swim in anything. John saw a moose, my dad and I saw a pair of  (more...)
