Location: Comanche Bluff Trail

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 5.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: Hiked out as far as the 'driftwood' section today and turned back due to underestimating water needs. Will definitely need to go back out there and finish it some day. It really is amazing just how many bridges there are along this hike, not even counting the two giant salvaged bridges that were built in the 1920s. The further west you hike, the fewer people you'll see and the less maintained the trail seems. The back of the trail guide does say that "The trail is _NOT_ completed" though, so perhaps the western parts will improve. At any rate, highly recommended for an interesting long hike with few people around.

The author apologizes for the lack of table of contents and index that seem to be absent in the Kindle edition. He is working with the publisher to remedy the problem. They are present in the paperback version.
