I was going to make this a 7 mile out and back but this wasn’t the best of trails. The first 1.25 miles was an egress down a forest service road. And then the trail continued through a former burn area with a lot of downed trees. And it was unusually hot. Not very entertaining so I turned around early and came back. Just 3.1 miles with 350 feet of AEG in an hour.

Under mostly cloudy skies we were the only ones on this trail today. The first 1.5 miles is along a road that grants access to the few private home owners in the area but with the creek roaring along the side, it's not that bad. The trail never strays too far from the creek. The further in we ventured, the more patches of soft snow we ran into. That made for slow going so we picked a lunch spot about 3.5 miles in, had our lunch and returned. Didn't see a single soul on the trail today which was a nice break from the crowded Seattle area hikes we've done recently.
