This first batch is Summit Trail to North Peak Trail, and North Peak Trail to North Peak Rd-
|Summit Trail-this is the small stretch from the lower parking lot down to the road where you turn onto North Peak Trail.|

|First glimpse of North Peak, and the climb up that awaits.(not the very visible trail to the right, but rather the one on the far left heading up the ridge.)|
View of North Peak Rd from North Peak Trail.
For reference in later pictures, if you follow the trail up the ridge, near the top it ducks behind the rocks. Behind those rocks is the wall of a climb that is a 46% grade.
North Peak Trail is in excellent shape right now. Very runnable, not too loose or squirrely.
A fun little bit of downhill on North Peak Trail.
The view behind you of the summit.
I'm doing the climb up North Peak in a separate post to break up all the pictures...it'll be up in a few minutes.
