A close to home, good workout hike. I wanted to get something in before the rains hit.

I prefer the 104th st/Bell TH, to stay away from the masses at the Gateway TH.

Bell Pass Trail gets your heart pumping. Only a handful of hikers met getting to the saddle.

I saw no one on the Prospector Trail heading over to Thompson Peak Rd.

I was a bit surprised at how many people we climbing to Thompson Peak. I've never passed more than a few on this climb.
This time there were 15+ passed. You know a trail is steep when your heels don't touch the ground while climbing. That happens on this one in the paved spots. This climb really gives your calves a workout.

I stayed dry until a mile from the car. I hit a 5 minute squall that got me a bit wet.
