Nearly due east of the Skookumchuck trailhead are three little mountains: Bickford (2,374 ft); Scarface (2,802 ft); Big Bickford (3,261 ft). Since bushwhacking is the only means of access, these mountains only have a few occasional visitors.

Yesterday (12-April), I visited Bickford and Scarface mountains. I know that treks such as this have limited appeal. But, for anyone interested in reading more about this hike, just CLICK on the photo below and it will take you to a report posted on my Blog.

As a side note, I've been told by one person (so far) that my Blog report doesn't come up when clicking on my photo of Cannon Mountain. For anyone else who might experience that same problem, please try clicking on the link below. That should work. But if not, please let me know. Perhaps there is some other issue going on here.:confused:

This should be posted at the non-trailheads in these locations with a postscript that says "- except for 1 Happy Hiker".

Jim is so right! Loving the new blog. First thing to check in my daily RSS feed to see if I've got a new entry in the "path less traveled journal". Keep 'em coming John. Hope to add many of these to my retirement ramblings list someday.

John,

I'm with these guys. You're blog is awesome...right down to you mapped images. I love hearing about the bushwhacks and seeing views from perches that aren't typically visited. Thanks!

This looks like a great hike and these mountains are some that I have never heard of before (which is why the maps are so great!!!).

I am also with everyone else in saying I really enjoy following along on your hikes. Thanks for bringing us along with you.

Jim; Mark; Karl; Bob: Okay guys . . . you're making me blush with such kind words!:o
I wish there was something more I could say other than a simple "thank you"!

Next week I'll be travelling down way down south (like NC & DE) to visit relatives. No off-trail adventures will result from those travels, but I'm hoping to get in some sort of hike during this visit.

Thanks again!

John,
Always most enjoyable. If you didn't post these lesser known places to hike, we would be at a lose. Also, like the way you can click on the picture and one is magically taken to your blog.
Look forward to some "southern" finds.
