Route: Beehive Trail, Champlain South Ridge Trail, Bowl Trail

Precipice Trail is closed for Falcon pre-season training or something. Doubt they'll win the Super Bowl anyway.

Trails were mostly dry and in good shape. Beehive is a very fun climb, while the Bowl peaceful and the ridge a very fun walk.
