7.5 miles of hiking • 2000' elevation gain •

I was one of hundreds of people up here today, including two BCEP groups and at least two other hiking club groups. This experience validated my preference for hiking alone, on weekdays, on obscure trails.

I feel your pain. Angel's Rest was packed today. I waited in a queue to climb up the rocks, and had to ask people to move from where they were seated so I could walk to the edge and look out. Huge departure from last week's trip up Herman Creek and Hamilton Mountain, both of which were almost entirely empty.
