Thumb Butte

Thumb Butte

Today we hiked 1.7 miles counterclockwise on the following trails: Watertower Trail #315, Ridgetop Trail #317, and Pine Lakes Trail #316. The trailhead was adjacent to the host campsite and at an elevation of 5,690 feet. The high point had an elevation of 5,820 feet. We enjoyed several good views of Thumb Butte to the south and at one point an expansive northern vista. We encountered several walkers and a few joggers. This was our third hike on this year’s “Take a Hike!”
