Difficulty: 4stars  Solitude: 5stars
Miles Hiked: 11.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 6 hours, 45 minutes


A beautiful 65 degree sunny day which started out at 35 degrees. Beautiful scenery abounds on this hike. At this time the creek was not flowing so it was easy to cross. The trail is rocky and sturdy hiking shoes are reccommended. The Trail ascends 700' to the 4 mile loop which is fairly level with minor ups and downs. If you turn left at the intersection with the loop there is little to no shade for a couple of miles. If possible this could be done before the temperature rises. I took a 3 liter camelbak and drank half as the temp was very pleasant.
