Forest Road Hike

Hike Distance: 7.8 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 1946.8 miles

Elevation Gain: 1545 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 251125 feet

So I needed a hike to help me exceed 250,000 feet for this year, and this was it.  This area obviously had plenty of elevation gain/loss but the roads were very rocky and harsh on the body.  I’m thinking I overdid it on this hike, seeing that my SI joint is having such difficulty.  Hindsight is a b–tch!

We weren’t fond of this area as it was a nasty clear-cut mess.  I really do hate seeing the devastation of clear-cut logging.  I know it’s going to happen but that doesn’t soften the blow, especially when you see it in person.  We won’t be going back here!

A fairly nice day and it at least helped me meet my elevation gain goal.
