Ascent Trip Report

Took the Timm's Hill national trail starting at mile 6, and hiked in from there. It is a cross-country ski trail which looked like it might be nice in winter, but in late summer was a bit boring, though the 3-4 lakes along the way were pretty. Lots of bright green frogs. I took one detour (tried the 4K loop trail) that got a little confusing in a maze of logging roads, but otherwise it was pretty obvious until I got near Timm's Hill and missed the parking lot and was continuing until I realized I was getting farther away, so turned and bushwhacked up the hill until I hit a trail. There is a watch-tower at the highpoint from which mild views can be had. Headed back via the main trail. Did not see a single hiker on the trail, though there were quite a few people at the actual highpoint.
