Just barely over 7 miles long, with a total elevation gain of 1500 ft., this used to be one of my regular hikes this past spring. And regularly it used to kick my butt.
Not so today. Yes there were some huffy puffy parts (wouldn't be a good hike without them), but overall it felt quite relaxed.
Haven't done a short one like that in months. I consider it my warm-up hike; the big one is tomorrow.
When I left the house this morning it was so foggy I couldn't see the house across the street. Always a bit tricky to drive in the fog. But as I drove up the hill a ways to the trail head I left the fog below me.
It was a gorgeous day, quite warm actually, no jacket needed.
