Floodwood Mountain

Floodwood Mountain is an excellent hike for the entire family. The terrain is moderate with only a short amount of steep sections. From the gate you will be hiking along a forest road, where a bit of flooding often occurs due to beaver activity.  The road will split but don’t follow the left fork. The trail leaves the road soon after the fork and begins a moderate climb over rocky terrain to a couple short steeper pitches that brings you to the highest summit on Floodwood Mountain. A sign on a tree clues you in the right direction to the Southern Summit. This section is marked and is only about 0.25 miles in length. There is a short steep descent over slab rock to a small rock scramble that gets you to the summit. Open views reward you with a relaxing space with views of the areas mountainous layout. The views are amazing and a southern summit which is a bit further offers even better views.
