Chad thought it would be fun to knock off a bunch of short Trails today instead of doing one longer one. Made sense to me, as you get alot of variety and you wouldn't want to make a trip up the Mountain just to do one short Trail, so we sewed a few up today.
This was the first one, as we worked our way up the Swift Trail. This Hike was an out and back with the TH being located at the Arcadia Campground. The beginning of the Trail was a little hard to find, but we hooked up with the Trail a bit further up the slope and hiked to the Overlook. Nice spot looking across Wet Canyon towards the Peaks on the other side, including Heliograph Peak. You can continue on and make a Loop of this one if you want to bushwack down Wet Canyon, but that was not in the plans today. The wind was blowing a little, but not too bad. Enjoyed the views, headed back down and followed the Trail all the way back to the Campground, finding the beginning and taking note of it. Nice easy start to the day.....
