    Coordinates listed here disagree with the book (they’re same as A16)

    We loved it! But we hiked it out to the airstrip viewpoint (on the mapboard photo above) which added nice variety through the forest and more great views looking south from there. Agree going down to Glenduan and then back up might be redundant but you can see for yourself when you’re there as the world is in view. On the way back we did as Scott said and went off-trail, down along the fence-line. So we did all he said, just more… and recommend every bit of it.
