|Lost and Found:
||This is a really awesome hike, ~10 miles in all. Definitely start with Mt Tom, then head across to Field then Willey, and finish by heading down to Avalon- it's worth it, and actually makes the hike a little shorter. To "climb" Avalon is maybe 100' up. |
Willey has the most stunning views of all, but Avalon is pretty great too.
Trail is gradual and not difficult- somewhat steep heading up to Tom.
