Nice walk along the river. No one on the trail today. Covered by leaves and easy to get off trail. Pretty cold day made it harder as i didnt what to keep on. Start near the golf course, walk at the cabanon

Just a great all around trail. Starting at the Gardens trail head, hiked to JBL and onto Lower Wolf Jaw. The trail was very well maintained and the views and scenery were gorgeous. Plenty of all types of terrain from the woods, creeks, hills, valleys and a few suspension bridges. The lower wolf jaw trail has some very inclined terrain and was exhausting. Took my wife on this for her first hike and she feel in love with hiking and it's a tough hike (if you aren't in any kind of shape.). Round trip hike was 12+ miles but it was worth every step and aching muscle! I highly recommend this to any nature lover or hiker

Completed upper wolf jaw but the approach from Ausable Club is the same for both upper and lower. This was a moderate hike with slippery conditions. Prepare to go off trail and bush whack a bit as certain areas of trial are not passable due to frozen ice on ledges. Microspikes were absolutely necessary when I went up on Dec 6th.

A beautiful sunny, warm day with no wind. Started and finished at the Ausable Club, The trail was covered in ice above 3,000 feet. The scrambling was quite challenging due to the ice. Nor many views along the trail but the views at the top are great.

Took the W.A. White trail from St Hubert's to the summit of Lower Wolf Jaw. Most of the trail was moderate in grade; the steeper sections weren't until you approach the "wolf's chin" up through to the summit. Descended via the Wedge Brook trail to the West River Trail.
