Description We hike up Thompson Trail, climb to the first viewpoint for views north and east, then descend the mossy bluffs of the open ridge in a northward direction. After the ridge peters out, we follow a deer route through the forest to the B&B Trail. After hiking this for a short distance, we take a side trip to Eileen’s Bluffs, with splendid views east and south from angles not normally see on the island. Backtracking to the B&B Trail, we carry on to Thompson Trail and east on Thompson to the trailhead.
Meeting Place Thompson trailhead on Thompson Road. Carpool if you are able.
Departure Time 9:30 am
Difficulty Easy to moderate (on steep and potentially slippery bluffs)
Costs none
Trip limits 10
Dogs? Okay if under owner’s control
Notes: Sturdy hiking shoes/boots required. Hiking poles may be helpful. Bring a lunch or snack. Estimated time 2½ to 3 hours. Please read the Outdoor Club Hiking Guidelines before the trip. If you leave a phone message, also leave your phone number in case trip plans change. Hikers who show up without pre-registering may not be allowed on the trip due to group size maximum.
