This was a shock.
Such an nothing lump of land with some trees on it, not worth a photo or googling at or really much of anything. But it was something to check out and turned out to be one of those great little hikes easily done after work near the end of the day, it’s really that quick to say you climbed a ‘mountain’ after supper.
Located about 1km past the Sibbald Flats-Powderface junction, continue west down Highway #68 to a sharp left turning bend in the road, drive a few hundred meters, carefully turn around and go back east and look up. You will see a very insignificant bump with a small useless rock outcrop near the ‘summit’. This is Weaver Mtn.
Park what seems most pleasing off the road and walk up into the trees right on the road’s curve just left of some tiny clay embankment. Hike up staying right away from the slightly woodier woods and eventually you will come to a steep meadow. Follow this up and up and it will eventually be a minor forest and then higher up easy scree. The yazoo stream below looks great from this angle you would never know from your car.
After 30+ minutes from the car you will pop out atop the mighty summit of Weaver Mtn, which is stated on a relic of a sign posted upon a tree which has toppled into the woods. It all seems strange as the way you just came may have seen man before. But walk 15m NW and holy there is a trail, no, two trails that split and good beaten ones. Further down the secret is out – this must be a popular horse trail as an old log has been fallen as a place to tie horses. Where the trails head off to and how many kilometers they go for is a mystery likely only equestrians know!
