Couldn't have asked for a better day. The first part of the hike was the steepest: over 700 ft. of gain in 3/4 mile. The views were magnificent!! From the top we took a loop trail around the mountain. We mistakenly took two wrong dead end trails that were muddy climbs rather than hikes. Eva and I demonstrated our butt slides (accidentally). After a short drive we hiked up the Bartram Trail to Scaly Mountain. More great views. On the way back we stopped for dinner in Clayton at a GREAT REASTURANT called Universal Joint. It was housed in a former auto repair shop and was really neat and the food was excellant. Highly recommended. (Larry)
