10 miles of hiking • 2500' elevation gain •

Lovely wildflowers blooming on the Oak Ridge Trail. After heading south on Surveyor's Ridge to retrieve my game camera (abysmal results), we turned north to climb up the steep gravel ATV road to Bald Butte.

Bald Butte would be a lovely summit except for the massive scars from motorized vehicles, it's a bummer to see that damage.

p.s. morels are starting to pop!
