Hike the Trig M Trail

2.1 Miles Total - 1509.2 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Tobin Akehurst

This short hike has expansive mountain views from the top and would be a great snowshoe route.

The hiking trail first ascends a hillside to about 1,500 meters. It then follows the crest of a ridge in a southwest direction until you reach the "trig", a marker used in geographical survey. The maintained track ends here but hikers wanting more can continue traveling cross country to Rabbit Hill. Return the way you came.

In winter this trail makes for an ideal snowshoe route. The terrain is never to steep and its just the right length for beginners.

Want more? Got for a short walk and see sunset at Castle Hill, just 15 west on the main road.
