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.
