What a beautiful day for a hike, and what a nice trail to hike! The weather was clear, cool (crisp in the early a.m.), not too much traffic on the trail and the trail is nicely maintained. I particularly appreciated that the steps were not too large or deep, and thus facilitated this short-legged, two gal team in making good time. There are beautiful views of many interesting rock formations and the hills are still beautifully green. My hiking buddy & I brought yummy snacks to enjoy as we watched the bravery of those fighting their fears to get perched on the Potato Chip rock, then we joined along. This was the perfect beginning hike to the 6 Peak Challenge!
