Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: There was no sign for Emerson Rd off 110 so we shot by it and instead came in from Stark. Gravel roads in good shape. Room for a few cars at the parking area just before the Percy Peak trail head, but more could park at wide spots in road there or at the Percy Loop's.

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: rock step 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Several blowdowns on Percy Peak, some only partial. Crunchy leaves on the trail low, wet ledges up high, but the rock has enough roughness that the footing was okay. They were drying in the sun though. I wouldn't want to be on them if they iced up. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Fun day for Pepper who was joined by an enthusiastic Chipper. There isn't water above the minor stream on Percy Peak so they enjoyed drinking from a bowl on top. The open ledges were no problem for either. Pepper enjoyed sip n dips down low. 
Bugs
Bugs: None

Comments
Comments: This hike gives extended open ledge hiking with great views for modest effort. As often happens the forecast was off, and we had a dry hike with increasing sun, ending with a wonderful partly sunny woods walk. We didn't see another soul on the trails. Libby, Carol & Chipper shared a splendid hike before heading off to the Wolverine State.
