I wanted to get out with a couple of good friends. An easy day was called for so we went to just outside of Couger and walked an abandoned road along the river. Lots of nice side creeks on a misty day.

We wanted to find a close in less crowded hike. So we parked at the Equestrian TH to Hardy Ridge and took the lower route up to a brief stop at the Hamilton Saddle and then decided to explore on of the options north from the saddle that I had not been on yet. Wonderful day.

No big waterfalls, but tons of beautiful cascades and mossy cedars. The road in is a bit rough but fine. With all the water right now the side creeks were running strong. The further in we went we needed to spend a bit of time searching for the best way to cross, which was fun. About a mile the ford of Eagle Creek we hit one that was doable but didn't have anything that both of us felt comfortable with given the amount of daylight left. So we called it good and headed back.
