I decided to start my spring with a short 10 mile hike. The weather was cool at about 25 with a wind from the wsw of about 15mph. The sun was shinning and promised to be a beautiful day. The first 2 miles of the hike is over open terrain following behimd several ranches. The trail markings are few and far between. At about 2.5 miles you start a small climb of about 500 feet for about a mile. You cross a creek several times with some of the hike in the stream bed, this is because the mountains walls are straight and smooth towering above you on both sides. At about 3.5 mile mark you start the steep climb to the top, a gain of about 2000 feet in 2 miles, the trail is carved into the side of the mountain, with spectacular views along the way, there are a lot of kodak moments. The trail levels out near the top and continues on for serveral more miles, eventually connecting to the Dead Indian Trail. You must decied as to when you want to turn around. I would recommend this hike. Remmeber to take along plenty of water and snacks. Also this Bear country, so do not forget the bear spray ( I recommend UDAP Brand ) and a bell for your pack. Happy Hiking..
