Perfect day & a great hike today. A little overcast, some drizzles. 9.8 miles 1222 AEG. I went to the Taliesen Overlook and then got serious about this trail. I have my State Trust Land permit so I kept going past the sign, even though I didn't have it on me today. I met two stewards and had a nice chat. I went to where the two drainages converge. "Two paths diverged in a canyon arroyo, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveller" I turned around and headed home. I did not have a map and had not checked the maps and I'm a hiker not a metaphysical poet like Robert Frost. I did go a little up the left fork, but did not go to what I now know to be the end of the trail at 4.9miles. On the way back I went up to the Quartz outcrop. This is the only serious cardio on this hike. The smell of barbeque steak on the last 2 miles is a strong motivator to get home. Saw several interesting birds and some wildflowers were starting to bloom. This was a 3 today but could be a brutal trail in the summer.
