 Tour de Huron   

I wasn't too interested in a quick up and down on the standard route. The Tour de Huron sounded much more appealing, and I wasn't disappointed. I have the full trip report and all the photos on my blog at the link below.

Thanks for posting, i have been looking at this for my trip in Sept. I was thinking of taking the standard route up Huron and then descending browns, un 13462. Since you did the opposite, do you have a thought on which way is better?

I enjoyed my direction because it had a nice build up of elevation and scenery. It was neat to have Huron visible in the distance and finally reach it The other way would get the elevation over with faster. As far as descending, The standard route is more solid than Lulu Gulch which is rocky so Lulu could be a little rougher to descend. I think the direction I went may be the way to go, but it's the only way I've done.

Love that route

Nice pictures! I like going clockwise for sure- gets you up onto the ridge sooner for the views and then the standard trail takes you down more directly to tree line and water as the day wears on.
