Default MT. THOM Dec.01/19

This is a relatively short and easy trail, about 400 - 500 meters elevation gain depending where you start. On attached map image, you will note the trail marked in orange. During an earlier November trip started at Start #1 , second time started at "Start #2 ". From the later is about 400 meters net elevation gain with about 3 - 4 km return. With the longer version is about 7 km return.

Here is the map:

Looks like nice after work leg stretcher, in a moody late fall atmosphere.


Keep going strong Karl, no matter what the trail is. That's the only way. And thanks for sharing your adventures!

Thank you very much for your kind compliments Zeljkok

Things have been going slow lately, but hope to stretch the legs out further in the near future.
