This is a trail that climbs to the peak of Raspberry Mountain that is about 6 miles long. The climb is gradual until the very end when there is a steeper climb to the top where there are phenomenal views.
We started pretty early in the morning and the air was crisp and cold at the start. Here is a picture of the trail head from the road:
You can see the sun is just beginning to warm up the air and steam is rising from the meadow at the trail head.
Here you can see that the trail is wide and sometimes eroded.
All along the trail are mushrooms of many types. I really wish I knew which are edible and which are not even though some of them look extremely distasteful! I'm guessing we found every possible poisonous mushroom you can find!
Towards the top it gets rocky...
