The uphill way to get from Yukon's Lunch to Big Merlin.

Jon Sundquist

Overview

Description

This trail starts at the end of Yukon's Lunch. Another unmarked trail can be seen coming up from a clearing below. The trail curves its way around the nose of a spur and then enters a spruce grove on a nice sidehill cut.

The trail continues on the sidehill but soon after you see an old trail drop off to your left (leads to a campsite off of Mutton Hollow Rd.) the roots start to get more pronounced, making the climb a little more challenging. Finally you'll break into the deciduous trees again, just as the grade gets a little steeper. After a creek crossing, one last push leads you off, with even a little downhill to the crossing at Mutton Hollow Rd.

After you cross the road, the climbing starts again after a brief level bit. You'll pass through a rock garden to get to a particularly scenic creek crossing. Cross the creek and start to double back uphill. A short steep section then levels you off in some young growth before a short descent to a former log road at the edge of some spruce. At the end of this grove, the trail starts its last climb up a sidehill to join Big Merlin.
