My friend Gabe is evil. He knows how my brain works. So he should know better than to suggest what Backpacker Magazine refers to as “the third hardest dayhike in America.” Because it’s less than a 5 hour drive away. Naturally, I’m not just going to want to do it, I’m going to want to trail run the entire thing in a day.
11 miles out (+ around 14 miles back); 9 peaks; close to 19k elevation change on the day. Nice.
Sigh… Add it to the list.
