    This is a good one! Completed on 5/19/18 and this will kick your ass. We did it clockwise and it starts out nice enough but once you hit the short cut, it gets pretty serious. This is an intense climb so make sure you're well prepared for this. I clocked in around 1500ft of gain. After this, it's a nice walk on the ridge. We cut down Jackass Trail, though, wouldn't really recommend this route, its super overgrown right now and we found lots of ticks on us after that stretch. The climb on Poverty Flats is pretty rough too, tough way to end an already long hike. I should have filtered more water at China Hole but opted not too. This is a solid hike but as long as you're well prepared, it's nice and challenging. Enjoy before it gets to hot!

    This hike is still great. There's two fallen trees about 5 miles in though. One has an easy man made path to go around, the other is right over the trail and you need to squeeze underneath, it's a bit of a tight fit but doable. Well worth it to get to the grove at the end!

    This is a great hike but not for the faint of heart. There's a good deal of elevation on this. I clocked in at about 12.5 miles. Beautiful in April, green hills and wildflowers are still all over. The falls are nice and make for a great spot to enjoy lunch. Pretty strenuous hike though. The incline and decline are both about as tough. Highly recommended as long as you're comfortable with your hiking abilities.

    This was a really nice trail. It's pretty strenuous though I wouldn't consider it super hard. There's a lot of ups and downs on it though and right away you're on a steep incline before it levels out on the top before dropping down a couple more times. It takes you through some different landscapes which is nice and it's a combination of wide trails and single track. Expect a lot of cows to be around but they didn't bother us much. Also saw a coyote and heard several others howling off in the distance. We didn't see many people and it was a beautiful day. This is a nice hike overall and would definitely recommend. I would not go if it's muddy though, the trails would be rough to hike through.

    This is a pretty tough hike, as there's two big gains, as previously mentioned. I think this is best done in Fall/Winter as there's really no cover. Also, the track on here doesn't seem to take you to a Peak. I'll need to try this again and see if I can find the actual path to what I think is the Peak but still a nice hike. I didn't see anyone once we entered the watershed either. I plan on trying this again when it cools down.
