 Red Hill and Eagle Cliff 6/25/16
Just a quick write up on this one. I decided to finally check this hike out Saturday.
I'd always planned on hitting this one when I'd be spending a few days up north.
As a on the way thing. But after years of blowing it off, I said the hell with it.
Did the 4.25 hour RT drive, for the 5 mile RT hike. Pretty decent hike. It would
have more enjoyable if it were not 100 degrees. :shock: :wink: OK, high 80's. 8)
But it was hot as hell in the woods. Nice cooling breeze while up on the tower though.

I ascended via the Eagle Cliff Trail, but decided to skip some elevation gain (HOT!),
by taking the Teedie Trail back to the road. This gave me just a short road walk
back to the car.

I'll give a 7 out of 10 for tower views. Pretty nice.

When Greg and I did Red Hill we skipped Eagle Cliff, but only just barely (was the end of a long day, you know how it goes with us :D ) But looks like the cliff is not too shabby. I am going to have to redline it some day regardless, but I will be sure to wait for a nicer day. 8)

The hike itself looks nice. The pics look great. You've really nailed the settings now on that camera. A few of those I feel like I'm actually there for the colors and contrast are so well done on. Nicely done.

Eagle Cliff was OK, but I was under the impression it was more open. Saw pics that suggested that on old HikeNH'r, Escapes blog. Plus, no eagles. :evil:
