The Percy Loop Trail
The Percy Loop Trail

Route: Percy Loop Trail, Percy Peaks Trail, (North Percy Peak), Percy Peaks Trail, Percy Loop Trail

Percy Loop Trail has smooth footing for the first half, so a nice walk. Some minor mud. Ledges up high got a little wet from a passing shower, however the dried out quickly. Hazy views, but still nice (except with the wind farm popping out of otherwise nice backcountry views). Winds made the summit quite nice to hang around on.

Lots of wild low bush blueberries in bloom - could be a nice crop next month!
