Trek from Okutama Station to Mt.Gozen, Mt. Shoguchi, Mt.Nokogiri

Yesterday(October 18th), I walked from Sakai Bridge to Gozen Mountain, and to Nokogiri Mountain, and went down to Okutama Station. I thought that I'd like to see Tochiyori Waterfalls, but the path to the waterfall had been prohibited, so I could see only from the road. The distance to the waterfalls was about 30~50m, the shape of it had been covered by so many trees, so I saw a part of it. The mountain path to Gozen mountain from forest of Okutama was not so wide and it continues uphill. Dscf4392s The mountain path near the Nokogiri Mountain, you have to walk side of the big rock and walk up the steel ladder.

About the mountain path from Nokogiri Mountain to Okutama Station, it has a lot of stones, and a steep up/down-hill.
Dscf4401s You have to scramble down the steel ladder.
And you have to walk down on the rocks that sometimes has no chains. If you are not a good walker, you might be troubled lightly on your knee.

I made a light trouble on my right knee ligament because of many downhill shocks. Now, I'm getting well.

I walked 16km. It took about 6hours includes a short break for lunch at Mt.Gozen.
