From Otsuki up 139 with a couple detours and a longish hike in the middle. The first detour to the right of 139 led me up a nicely paved road past some pretty farm houses. I had to push my bike up one section to collect a Veloviewer tile and walked back down because the road was still damp and covered in moss. I collected my two Veloviewer tiles and headed back to 139.
The next hike took longer than planned due to trying to find the start of the trail up the mountain. Turns out you have to go behind an abandoned(?) house and then try to sort out where the trail is from there. The start is not marked at all, but once you find it and get past the first 200 meters or so, it is pretty easy to follow to the top. The trail in good shape and covered in pine needles. Despite the rain the previous day, it was not soggy. It had a fairly steep pitch so was rather slow going. It was only 1.5 km to the top but felt like a lot longer.
Had planned to head off to the left after the dam and do some exploring but it was already 12:30 and I had two more hikes ahead and one climb on the bike as well, so took the tunnel and then headed over to 18. The weather was great. Nice and cool, so the climb didn't feel bad at all.
I had two more small hikes on the way back to Uenohara. The first was short and easy, the second was more difficult because, again, the start of the trail was not well marked at all. I had tried to find it once before and couldn't, so this time, determined, I stumbled around through tall weeds and through a stream, and finally came upon the start. After that it was a 15 minute hike to collect my Veloviewer tile, return to the bike and head off to Uenohara.
Beautiful weather for biking, dramatic skies and scenery, fresh air, and the trees are just beginning to turn. That's what it's all about.
