We started off the hike in search for isolation, and thats what we found. We started off initially towards site H, but stopped at C and G to check them out as well. Site H is definately the furthest out and the most Isolated. There is a steep incline right before you get to it that will definately make you appreciate arriving to the site. Although it is on top of a hill, there is not much of a view due to the dense foliage. We ended up setting up at site H because it was getting late. The next day we traveled up to the scenic overlooks which were great. The wind was probably 20-30mph and there was a light drizzle. It was fantastic weather in my opinion. We hiked along the creeks, off trail, which was one of the highlights of the trip. That along with the ridge over site C was the best part.
