Great weather. Good company. Trails good. Up boulder trail. Down blue trail. Blue trail could be better marked.

I've hiked Mt Major 10 times now. Going early week nights are the best to avoid the Disney land line of people. last night 4/23/18 was my first time getting lost in the woods in the dark. To the point we considered calling for help. We lost the yellow trail coming down in the dark. Our hike started before sunset, we finally made it back to the parking lot at 1am. It was a great adventure

If you want to hike Mt. Major without fighting the crowd. Try this back way up. Go to the end of Jesus Valley rd. Park on side of road. You start up Old Stage rd. for .1 of mile and pick up Jesus Valley trail ( red ) sign says to Straightback & Mt. Major. About 1.7 to top of Major. Then come down Boulder loop trail ( orange ) a little over mile and pick up Jesus Valley / Beaver pond trail (red ). this forms your loop.
