I found this trail write up by GPSJoe and figured why not, we'll follow a loop for a good chunk of miles & AEG. We got an early start and hit the Blodgett trail. We made our up and were sweating in no time. It poured the night before and the humidity was intense! I was soaked by the time we hit the roads. From there it was easy going all the way to WCC trailhead sign off of 214A.

We took our time descending into WCC. That portion of trail is steep with great views...not a good mix! Finally the trail levels off and we find ourselves heading down canyon parallel to WCC. We greatly picked up our pace and arrived at the 4th Creek Crossing (From Bull Pen). We crossed the creak and had our lunch. The water was so refreshing and helped reenergize myself! The rest of the hike back was a breeze.

The Blodgett portion was a chore going up. I would only recommend it if you want the miles and a loop. The views are solid along the way. You can gaze down on WCC for just about the entire section. That was cool!
