Comments
Comments: Despite the black flies, we tried to grab some northern peaks before the logging regrowth leafs out.

As the logging regrowth and whippets were not fun, we opted to hike these as two separate hikes rather than as a loop hike.

Northwest Peak: we bushwhacked up the NE ridge, following overgrown whip-filled roads, to the summit. There was a jar and that ubiquitous yellow X :-(. Opted to descend directly down to road, NE'ly. It was a very steep descent, but woods were much more open. Short 0.4 mi. walk back to car.

East Peak: We entered overgrown logging opening, NE of peak. BW'd somewhat directly up to the peak. As we climbed, while steep, the woods became better to hike through. We intersected with a trail of sorts and some pink flagging. The summit had a jar and that Yellow X. For kicks we tried to follow the pink flagging all the way out. We lost it once or twice, but quickly found it again. The flagging, and "trail" of sorts, brought us back down to the overgrown logging area we entered.

Fun three days up in Errol with JEM3.
