Took the son (3yo) in an Osprey kid carrier backpack. Made it to the top of the first hill, 1/2 mile in with 484ft elevation gain. Was a thigh burner, especially with the kid on my back. At the top of the hill there was the first private property signage (west side of the mountain), and a bench swing with a majestic view of Garden Valley below. The trail markers here are east of the private property signage, so unknown where the property lines are. Decent hike, if I didn’t have a 3yo strapped to my back I would loved to hike on and see the rest. I’ll add photos of trail head, swing and property signage.
