Macintyre Range....DONE!!!!!

Dad and I at the top of Marshall

The Upper Works trail head.

A suspension Bridge that was really fun to run across :)

The Pi bridge right after the Pi Bridge on the left is the carne that marks the start of the herd path.

Iroquois from Marshall

Henderson monument who accidently killed himself in that spot.

We completed the Macintyre Range which is Wright, Algonquin, Iroquois and Marshall which has been recently completed by yours truly. We got up at 5:00 am. We got to the trail head around 6:30 and started on the Upper Works trail. It was a 4 1/2 mile hike of flatness to the herd path for Marshall. When we got to the herd path there was a cairn that marked the start. It was a 2 mile hike up to the summit and it was steep, muddy, and wet I can just remember the contour lines.If you are to ever hike Marshall 3,500 feet in elevation is the worst it felt like we were stuck there it was so steep and muddy. We got to the summit around 1:30 where we had lunch. At the top you wonder if you really are there because there is no views. There is a yellow marker in a tree that has Marshall faded away on it. We got to the back to our car around 8:00.

  1. We had another great hike. It was not all that steep - we must have taken a more difficult section of the herd path because we missed that bad section on the way down.

    You were a real trooper on that one, 13 1/2 hours is a long hike and you did not complain once! In fact you did better at the end then I did, I was having trouble keeping up.

    That should be one of our longest days, the rest of the hikes this season should be easier.
