Wednesday was a beautiful, sunny morning and a great day for a hike. Six of us and a dog hiked from the WalCan Rd over to the southeast corner of Morte Lake on the new South Bluff mountain bike trail. After a steep climb, this joins the hiking trail over lovely, mossy bluffs. We descended to Morte Lake and took the side trip to the viewpoint. The Lake was beautiful and Luna swam. We walked the old logging road to the “tripod” and then decided to extend the hike by taking Ridge Trail to join the path along Reed and Mud Lake back to the vehicles. 6.5 km, 2¼ hours.
