Yesterday Tracie, my intrepid hiking partner, and I made our first trek into Hell's Hole. All I can say is that Hell's Hole seems much more like heaven than hell!

We hit the trail around 8AM with the temperature in the low 30's...by the time that we got back in the afternoon, the temperature was a very pleasant 64 degrees. We saw a little snow on the ground, and with the dry winter no water shoes were needed to cross Workman's Creek, which is about 2.25 miles into the hike. The trail was in good shape, although it is getting rather overgrown on the descent/ascent to/from Hell's Hole. I was wearing shorts, and on that section I was wishing that I had worn long pants.

My garmin GPS measured 11 miles and an AEG of around 2,750' to and from Hell's Hole.

We did not see another soul on the hike, which suited me just fine!
