Came back with shredded legs from this one. The 'clear sailing' Terrapin Trail of the last two seasons has given way to the Cat Claw Carnival it is now. : rambo : It's all new growth, so it hasn't reached its maximum skin-shredding potential yet, but what it lacks in intensity, it makes up for in persistence. Maintenance here is on the very long list of things-to-do this year.

A little extra mileage for missing the turn-off to the Crosscut... the seemingly obvious double cairn towers marking the trail are somewhat less obvious coming from this direction than they are when you finally admit that you've passed it and come back the other way. :roll: (I may have been obsessing over my wounds when I walked by the first time!)

As well-traveled and overly cairned as the Crosscut Trail looks to be, I've never run into anyone else up there.

It was hot today, so we opted for the shade of the Peralta Trail instead of coming back on the Cave Trail.


Great hike to one of my favorite spots... Thanks for the company, Glenda! :D
