one of the most challenging hikes we've done in a while....very ...and i mean very secluded...to the point where you have no idea whether you are actually on a trail...or just bushwacking randomly through the forest..of course we also choose to turn off the trail as suggested here and set out to explore the Long ridge trail that is on the opposite side of the lake (no trail marks and animal trails for a guide) However, we would definetly come back to explore more.

were starting moundboulder loop and end at spruce pine hollow park 10 or ore miles.Beautiful view on way past Eagles nest.Stop on the big rocks and take note view,Before heading on up blue trail towards pine hollow,park a car at Boulder loop and another at spruce pine,Nice view of water and mountains.

Newbies beware the first part of the trail is all uphill. We hung a left at the top where it leveled off and it was an easier hike. Enjoy the quiet and fresh air!

Blue trail lookout was amazing

This is a beautiful WMA with Myers spring to supply your water demands. The water Ph is a little on the acid side but will satisfy your needs.
