Route: Bowl Trail, Beehive Trail

Late afternoon hike - blue skies, minimal crowds, excellent views, cool temperatures, no bugs. Made a short loop ascending the awesome Beehive Trail and descending a trail that goes back down to the col, bypassing The Bowl pond. Didn't catch the name of the trail, but it doesn't appear on the Map Adventures or AMC maps I have. Said trail was steep but not technical.
