Labrador Hollow - West Ridge

I spent a quick 90 minutes exploring the trail along the West ridge of the Labrador Hollow Unique Area in Tully, NY today. Similar to the trail up to the old hang glider launch on the East ridge, it's up, up, up!  However, this one is a bit longer and is built using a couple of switchbacks to handle the incline and altitude gain of about 700 ft.  Here we go!

The start of the trail just past the entrance from the road.

A nice little runoff stream. I'll bet it's really flowing in the Spring.

The trail up along the first switchback.

My car below in the parking area.

A cairn marking the turn to the second switchback.

Labrador pond to the SE through the trees.

My itty-bitty car from the second switchback.

The valley below and to the North.

It appears the trail continues to the South, but I was short on daylight so I'll have to revisit again another day.

Cheers!
