this was a great hike.. the weather was perfect.


the only bad thing is..lots of the trail has been washed away with the heavy rains.. there are a lot of trees that have been knocked over..

so actually finding the trail is kind of hard.

I will upload some pictures soon

I think this is the best way because its a 6 mile hike, form the north its much further. 6 miles a day is as far as I can go and still enjoy myself.. I have done as much as 12 in one day but its not nearly as enjoyabl...
