Ascent Trip ReportAfter bagging James Lake cohp we headed for Timms Hill (1,951), the state high point which was 20 miles east. After a quick hike to the summit and some pictures Eric and I took off for a run to Pearson Hill (1,951) which is the second highest hill in MI. We ran on some nice ATV trails and thought we’d bagged the summit. Our 42 minute run included another Ascent of Timms hill at the very end. Al picked us up and we went back to Pearson for a quick bushwhack in the very open (and very buggy) woods to get the correct high point. The road map in Grauer’s book includes most of the roads but none of the many trails in the area. The Timm’s Hill National trail website includes a bunch of trails but is very hard to match up with what we saw out there!
