An incredible vista from a 9408-foot summit should sound intriguing, especially if the trail to that summit is only 2.75 miles long, has an elevation gain less than 1000 feet, and is accessible from a major highway. If that sounds too good to be true, think again, for such is the case with the Thunder Mountain Trail. Despite these positive attributes, the trail sees less use than you might imagine.
