Fun Day Trying a New Trail in the King's Hill Area
To do this hike, we left a car at Silver Crest on the way up to the top of King's Hill Pass. The hike is about five miles with uphill at the beginning; but then it is downhill all of the way, unlike the Powerline, which requires some steep climbing right at the end of the hike.
We did like this new trail; however, if there are quite a few snowmobiles, the fumes could be obnoxious. We were passed by only five and that was a bit stinky. And most of the trail was broken, thanks to the gals who had gone two days before on Friday.
On a side note, we were passed closely by one snowmobile, with a young rider. When we got to the parking lot, the father apologized for his son getting so close. He explained his son was only four years old and just learning how to drive a sled. We were a bit shocked at how young he was to be on a sled by himself.
After our hike, we headed to Bob's Bar in Neihart to have sweet potato fries and huckleberry creams.
