Bryce M. on Devil's Head Lookout Trail to Fire ...
I literally could've spent the entire afternoon up there, was so nice! a good starting hike to start getting yourself back in shape
We hiked up to mohawk lake today (11/26/16) and it was packed snow on the trail most of the way up, then got a bit deeper once we were closer to the lakes, but fine to hike with or without Yaktracks on the shoes. Stunning views!! Follow Spruce Creek trail all the way and you're all set!

We felt like this was more challenging than the incline! Coming down was hard since we were tired haha. Simply incredible view at top. No bears, only tracks and poo. Be careful
Great local afternoon hike, but with the increased parking there is increased usage. I go early to avoid the buses and crowds. The farther back into the space you go, the more wooded and peaceful (not to mention shady) it gets. The initial few miles have the showy views.

We tried this for the first time to gauge where we are. We have a lot of work to do! Made it 1/4 of the way up before turning back. Had our 1 1/2 year old in a pack and our dog on leash. Lots of fun. Want to make it to camp next time. So inspired by all the other hikers who make this trek
