Eight of us had a beautiful fall day for this hike through open forest, over panoramic bluffs, and passing by lovely, calm lakes. We were in shirt sleeves for this very scenic loop. We started up the bike trail Morning Beer onto upper Deadfish, stopping to enjoy the view at Seven Sins. We descended Nirvana to the hiking trail around Morte Lake and stopped for lunch at the east side Morte Lake viewpoint. We ascended the South Bluff trail and followed along Mud and Reed Lakes to the Walcan Road. We crossed and hiked along Yellow Mud to Jack Rabbit, connecting back to the parking lot. We enjoyed the great views and the fall foliage. 9.6 km; 4 hours.
