First hike of the challenge. We took the look from Chantry Flats via Studevant Camp; first 3.5 miles to Studevant Camp were nice. The switchbacks up the Mountain were tough but we pushed through. We were worried about people but we picked a great day; just enough along the trails to keep it interesting. Came down the Mount Wilson Trail to the bench; after lunch it was done fairly well. The 2,5 miles from the bench to the Upper winter Creek trail seemed more like 5; prob a combo of tire and my toes screaming. Last 3 miles to the car were enough motivation to push through. Notes for next hike; bring a change of shirt ; mine got too stinky. Thicker socks, your toes will thank you on the way down.
