The Jake and Bull Mountain loop has a good variety of incline and decline in elevation.  This hike has good views of nearby mountains, streams, ponds, and open meadows.

We will be hiking at a fast pace of 3 mph for most of the hike with a few stops for water/snacks.

It is recommended that you bring a pair of water shoes to change into for the 2 stream crossings towards the end of the hike.  Both crossings are about 10 feet wide.  One is ankle deep and the other is knee deep.  We will stop to change shoes at each crossing.

There is a porta-potty at the trailhead.

Please be at the trailhead at 7:45 AM.



Required Items to Bring:

lunch/snack, water.

raingear (in case of pop-up shower)

Water shoes for 2 crossings towards the end of the hike (1 ankle deep and 1 knee deep)

Small towel to dry feet after water crossings

Recommended Items to Bring:

Hiking poles are entirely optional.

Change of footwear.
