“Down from Center Ridge, over the Traveler and up to the North Traveler.”— Bryan Gagner
It is unclear to me where the Center Ridge Trail, Traveler Mtn Trail, and the North Traveler Trail begin and end. I can assume it is at the summits, BUT... there is only one trail to follow from the beginning of the Center Ridge Trail through the rest of the The Traveller and South Branch Mountain loop.
Descending the ridge on the Traveler, keep an eye out for the trail as the alpine terrain, open slabs of heavily weathered basalt and small trees don't make it obvious. At mile 2, you'll begin the ascent up to North traveler Mtn. If you are on this section in August, The blueberries are amazing. I underestimated the time it would take me to finish this route and had to rely heavily on blueberries for energy AND water so eat up and enjoy.
Though unclear, take this trail to the summit of North Traveler Mountain, where The North Traveler Trail will bring you back to your car.
