Route: Wentworth Trail

With a little spare time, I headed over to Mt. Israel for a quick hike. While temperatures were cool at the trailhead, things warmed up as the hike progressed. The trail was dry, however the mosquitoes were out in the lower elevations.

The views from the highpoint were excellent, as were the views from the eastern ledges just beyond the highpoint. While it was tempting to lounge around for awhile, there just wasn't enough time.
