Comments
Comments: I thought this trail would be longer, but unless I missed something it's only half a mile to the boulder caves. A flagged path continued and climbed very steeply up through some very cool boulders before flagging stopped and it spilt off into a maze of herd paths. I guess one could keep scrambling up, but I turned back.

The trail passes right through the saddle between the twin summits of Bingham Hill. I again considered tagging both peaks but again decided I didn't want to deal with the ticks.
