    The club used the ramadas here a few years ago on a freezing, windy day for the Awards Potluck and Dave French led us on a hike up trail 44.
    Today we’ll do a loop which will introduce more trails and three offshoot trails to points of interest/history.
    Trails include; # 44, 60, 306, 100 and 101. We will reach the towers on the summit of both North Mountain at 2104' and Shaw Butte at 2149'. Both are easily recognized landmarks in the North valley skyline. Trails 44 and 306 have sections that can be a little intense due to rocky steep terrain.
