Imagine my surprise to meet this monster at the junction of the main trail and the north trail – ‘the pond’ as we refer to it.
But it isn’t a logging disaster, they are making a new trail, this one from Cedar Butte 4.5 miles west to (at least) McClellan Butte 5.5 miles east. From the looks of what I saw today, I would say it is going to be targeted at horseback riders and bikers more than hikers.
But when it is open we will find an off day and time to do it and we will check it out.
In the meantime, I got totally soaked today. It was a nice workout, 2:15 up and 1:50 down for a time car-to-car of 4:05.
Not much in the way of views today, it was just a tough slog.
