Cinqfoil Mountain

False summits after false summits

Cinq­foil moun­tain is  a inter­est­ing hike, it does not seem long, but it pret­ty well takes a whole day to sum­mit when you final­ly hit the peak. The hike starts off low and some what wet if the marsh is high. The year we did this hike has high water in the marsh and the beavers were busy, so the trail was wet until you start climb­ing.

The trail fol­lows the ridge line like big giant steps. Beau­ti­ful views once you clear tree line. Even before tree­line, the ridge clear­ing still affords you some nice open­ings.
