Route: Coot Trail, (Magalloway Mountain), Coot Trail, Bobcat Trail

The Coot Trail was essentially a jeep road to the summit - steep and eroded in places, but generally good going.

While there were excellent views from the fire tower, the views were more dramatic from atop the cliffs via a summit spur trail. The spur trail to the spring, on the other hand, was uneventful.

The Bobcat Trail provided a smoother, more scenic descent.
