Seven of us started from the parking area where the WalCan Rd crosses Hyacinthe Creek at the end of Reed Lake. We followed Janis up Straight as a Dime in very light rain and low cloud, and continued until we joined Silk Stocking. At the end of Silk Stocking we walked down the logging road to Bite the Bullet. We crossed the bridge and took Lady Lumps to Cash Only, and then Rick’s Ride to Yellow Mud, stopping at the beaver dam. This is a very lovely loop. There are great mossy bluffs, historical open copper mines with some old mining artifacts, open forest, and wet lands, complete with ducks. 10.9 km; 4 hours.
