Route Scout Route Recorded  on Route Scout Popup | MapDEX
Life is busy and I needed to stay close to home. Gateway trailhead is usually my go to for a quick workout hike, but I cannot stand all the crowds as of late there (think tourists who don’t move out of your way, stopping to ask you for directions, screaming kids, etc. NOPE!) Alas, I’m still short on time, so I popped over to the 104th street trailhead instead. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t full upon arrival as it’s a small lot. The Levee trail connects to the Paradise trail and it does connect to Gateway but for only a very short, somewhat tolerable distance. I had about 15 minutes with the crowds before turning off to the Bell Pass trail where shockingly hardly anyone ever goes. It’s steep & rocky but it’s not peopley! :y: I wanted to be respectful to the preserve closing hours, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to get all the way to the top, but I got pretty close. Heading back down is much faster traveling and I was able to make it back to my vehicle right at sunset. I got my workout, without the masses, 5 minutes from my house and I’m happy with that. I’ll be taking this route from now on to avoid the tourists! Next time I’ll try to get my work done faster (or hike faster, lol!) so I can go a bit further. Every day can’t be an adventure but getting outside is what’s most important.
