My 3rd time up to the peak of Throop Peak in the last year. Each time I'm up there I look for a peak registry log. I'm not finding anything. I'm a geocacher (BigDaddyGRC) so I've visited the cache several times. This last visit we found the trail covered in snow which made it a challenge without any gear for icy spots along the trail. The views are amazing for a quick after work hike.
I took my dog Parker with me on this trail, he got to splash in the water a little bit. I went the day after it rained so there was some running water which was very cool. The trail was well groomed and the scenery is very beautiful. I started at 9am and there was only one other couple on the trail. As we headed back there was about 5 different groups of people headed up. I don't care much for a crowded trail but everyone was very friendly and we exchanged "hellos" and "good mornings" :) Early bird gets the worm!!
