Bits of Sweetness: John Tursi Trail

John Tursi Trail

We had heard about this trail for a while but had yet to venture to find it! One sunny Saturday we decided to set out.

There are two access points for this trail: Pass Lake parking north of Deception Pass and the parking area by Donnell Road, off Campbell Lake Road.

We parked off Campbell Lake Rlad and walked the quarter mile down Donnell Road to the trail. We ran into fellow returning hikers who reported a wonderful hike.

Andrew was quick to find a walking stick. There are quite a few available resting on a rock that hikers leave for others to enjoy.

The trail has a little bit of an elevatipm gain but it's worth it for the beautiful views shortly into the hike.

We found quite a few pretty natural elements along the way.

The trail is well-maintained with rocks placed as steps and it was easy to navigate, clearly marked.

We reached the old mine and Andrew was thrilled as it was the main thing he'd wanted to see.

We didn't continue past the old mine but will soon because there is an abandoned miner's cabin you can see.

All in all it was a great hike.
