|Pagosa Springs, CO - September 2021 - Hike #3|
We weren't worn out by the the Alberta Peak CDT hike we decided to try a shorter hike to end the day. Although the full trail is 18+ miles, the route I had was a ~5 mile loop hitting the creek early on. However, barely a half mile into the hike it was obvious the track to the creek was off-trail, and again, the track being some 3-4 years old, the route was non-existent.
Since the sign at the trailhead said the first 3+ miles was simply an ATV trail, we decide the heck with a road-walk hike and bailed out and spend the time doing a road-recon for an upcoming hike up the nearby Jackson Mountain. So we headed out along the Forest Roads leading to my start point.
