    Was curious as to where the trail head is for Jay Mountain.

    An outstanding photograph. I hope to do a little bushwhacking through this wilderness area sometime soon. Unfortunately, I doubt any of my resulting photographs will look so good.

    • Thanks, you should check out the bushwack to Saddleback mountain, right next to Jay. Looks like it would be a nice one.

        I just might. My main reason for going is to check out Lot 8 before it gets cut up, bulldozed and mined, but I figured I might as well take in all that the Jay Mountain Wilderness has to offer while in the area.

  3. Has anyone else run into angry bees along the first part of the trail leading to the lookout? Went late last summer and loved the hike, but several party members (myself included) got stung at two different points along the path.
