Trail shared by Marvin Beecher

A short, yet grueling, hike to a peak that commemorates the life of Jack Edwards.

Marvin Beecher

Features Fall Colors · Views · Wildflowers

Description

There are two mailboxes at the top full of notebooks and letters that people have written in remembrance of Jack Edwards, who died of leukemia in 1995. It is a beautiful tribute.

Flora & Fauna

The flowers appear in the spring and don't last long into summer because of the heat. This is a great winter climb when many other trails are inaccessible.
