How is it that neither one of us has been on Hubbard Mountain before today?! I still don’t know. It’s so close to home and obviously has plenty of trails for hiking and biking. We began talking about it last weekend, and by this weekend I was ready to explore. I loved the drive up “Rustic Lane”—an aptly named old road used, I assume, for access by the utility companies—that basically goes straight up the mountain. I was even somewhat tempted to drive the powerlines toward the first cache, but we really needed the hike, and it was a beautiful (if windy) day.
