A filler / exploratory hike after completing a long hike of Mt Allen the day before. Since we were in the Newcomb area, Grant and I decided to explore something new for us - the short hike up to the top of Goodnow Mountain.

Goodnow is a great starter hike - the trail is wide and easy, the elevation gain not too excessive (1200 feet), and it has a very nice, well-maintained fire tower on top, along with several historic structures. The caretaker's cabin in particular is in very good shape. We did the hike early on a hazy summer morning and were treated to low-angle light and cottony-white ground fog in valleys. Views were superb from the tower.
