My friends and I were looking for a morning hike that was close by to where we live and found Little Flat to Bummer Peak Trail. The trail had beautiful views and for the most part was well maintained. Due to the lack of rain this January the footing was very good, although we wondered how it would be during an average winter, as there were several creeks that you crossed. We were not able to find any information before hand about the details or directions of the trail itself. The trail head (once we found it) did not have a map posted anywhere that we could find. We were able to find a small sign identifying that we had the trail we were looking for. There were several forks in the trail that we guessed at, but as beginning hikers with two of our group at least 75 years old it was not a good feeling. The view from Bummer Peak was beautiful, but we would have felt more confident if there were more specifics about this trail.
