Our group of 6 arrive at the top of Sarasota Road to begin a 5 mile hike. We begin our hike and soon hear....
....a group of mountain bikers behind. Just as they overtake us, one o them has to dismount.....kind of embarrassing for him as the trail wasn't that difficult right there. We continued our hike, climbed to Bobcat Ridge and then....
....began a decent to a saddle between Bobcat and Little Cat Mountain. I managed to pick up the off trail route and soon....
....we began a very steep hike toward the peak. The group was in good spirits as we closed on the peak and once there.....
....enjoyed many good views of our surroundings.
We walked along a ridge and stopped for a snack....
....while taking plenty of pics.
After our break, we begin our descent, moderate at first before a steeper section that averages a 40% grade. Had to be really careful there as plenty of loose rocks.
Back at the parking lot, we took a final look at the summit and congratulated each other as we all had made it to the peak. Finished with 5.1 miles and 1350' of climbing on this awesome, sunny day with temps in the mid 60's.
