3.5 miles of hiking • 500' elevation gain •
I decided to go back and conquer the trail I had previously turned around on due to my fear of the cliffs.
Went the opposite way this time, and found it much more manageable. That, and I think my 5 day trip in the Olympics on the rugged Skyline Trail just made it seem easy in comparison.
This trail has one fun scramble section, where the trail goes straight up a rock wall. Surprisingly, the dog did fine, and with a little pushing went right up.
The day was so hot though, we scrapped our next hike, and headed back towards Portland instead. We decided to get out and stretch our legs at Little Zigzag, and were refreshed by the cool breeze under the trees.
