7 - First Ore Bucket
9:?? am 270 ft <-- -->

Here's the first ore bucket you'll see along the trail. The markings on the part that was supported by the boom connecting it to the overhead cable read R9841 R508.

You should begin to see two towers way off in the distance in the valley that's generally to your right. The second one looks like a double tower.

Once you turn away from the cable a final time, the trail becomes harder as it starts going up more hills; or, maybe it's hard now. I can't seem to remember.
