This weekend will be Colvin(4057', #39), Blake (3960', #43), and back over Colivn.  I've heard that the trail between Colvin and Blake is a slog, and not fun... but not in the easy way that I had going between Panther and Couch.  This hike again starts at OMG hour of the morning at the AMR parking lot (if you don't get there at that hour, there's no parking and you're out of luck).  This starts how the Dial/Nippletop hike ended.  About 3.3 miles down lake road to the Gill Brook trail, and hike up about 2 miles until the trail turns off.  At this point, it's a climb up and over Colvin, then a steep down and up to Blake.  At that point, it's just going in reverse on the same trails back home.  These peaks are treed in, so the views are not going to be great.  If it's a dreary day, these peaks are perfect.  In total, this is a 14.5 mile hike with 4000' elevation gain/loss.

When these 2 are done, then I will have 5 peaks left.  Current plan is an overnight the last weekend of August and to finish on Dix (4857', #6).
