    Sierra Greenman reviewed Old Faithful to Madison Junction

    about 3 years ago

    We drove along the Madison River to Old Faithful. It was beautiful and full of bubbling geysers that you could see along the way. Make sure to stop at Old Faithful and hike along the path. It goes for miles and there are plenty of incredible geysers along the way! Our favorite was Castle Geyser.

    Sierra Greenman reviewed Cholla Trail

    about 3 years ago

    5 days ago I hiked Cholla Trail on Camelback mountain in Paradise Valley, AZ. I started at 6:30am due to the heat, but it was still too hot of a hike for me. By the time I left the mountain the temp was already climbing past 90 and after I suffered from a touch of heat exhaustion because I'm not used to hiking in heat. Despite the heat, I LOVED the trail. Located on the east side of the mountain, this challenging hike gets more difficult as you progress. It's a great cardio workout with its rocks and incline. It actually reminded me a lot of Bishop Peak and I'd love to go back and do Echo Canyon on the opposite side of the mountain. Plus it has incredible views the entire way of Scottsdale! I'll definitely be back in the fall to do this trail again when it's not so hot!

    Sierra Greenman reviewed Gaviota Peak

    about 3 years ago

    Loved the hike (hiked to the peak 5 weeks ago) but I wouldn't recommend going during the summer. It's fairly warm with little to no shade. If you start from the bottom of Gaviota Park Boundary road it's fairly steep and then flattens out on the ridge line. It keeps you going because I could see the ocean when I was on the ridge line.

    Ran into a ranger that said to watch for wild cats and so the first time I hiked this I actually didn't complete it because there was hardly anyone on the trail so I didn't feel safe.

    I went back the next day and completed it and made it to the peak! Once you're on the ridge it's about a mile more to the peak. There isn't a defined trail up to the peak and it's steep coming down, but once you make it the views are more than worth it. You can see Santa Barbara and the beach below!

    I would have loved to have hiked back via Trespass trail but it seemed rather rocky and I didn't have a walking stick with me. You can also hike to the peak from the beach which I plan to do next time. Overall it was a stunning hike, but Cerro Alto Peak still remains my favorite peak
    near Morro Bay.

    Sierra Greenman reviewed Adams Canyon Trail

    about 3 years ago

    My dad and I hiked Adam's Canyon this morning and I would rate this trail as moderately difficult, not easy. The incline of the trail doesn't stop but once in a while you have a few flat areas. Once you reach the canyon it's gorgeous with a nice breeze. We hiked near the stream and climbed up and up. There was one treacherous area where I was afraid of climbing down. Thankfully my dad found us an alternative way to get down by the stream. Whew! We hiked about 3.5 miles or more total and definitely burned some serious calories. Can't wait to do it again and make it to the waterfall!

    Sierra Greenman reviewed Sycamore Mineral Springs

    over 3 years ago

    I really enjoyed going on the Sycamore Crest Trail today. This beautiful trail in Avila Beach starts behind the Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort. Climbing up a wide trail for about a mile I encountered lovely trees that made me feel like I was in an enchanted forest. There's even a bench to sit on about a half mile up the trail. Even though the sign said the trail is rated intermediate I found it to be challenging because it was a mile straight uphill but easy compared to Bishop Peak for example. Once you reach the top you are greeted with a stunning and rewarding view of Avila Beach and Pismo beach. This trail also connects to Ontario Ridge, which I have also done in the past but I chose not to continue to on this hike. This trail is about 2 miles total, or 3 if you go to the right once you reach the top as opposed to the left (I went both ways for a challenge because the true summit goes up a steep hill to the right even though everyone goes up to the tower at the left). After going to the right and then to the left to the tower I headed back down. It's actually pretty hard on the knees if you have weak knees but definitely worth it due to the ocean views and sycamore trees!

    Sierra Greenman reviewed Felsman Loop

    over 3 years ago

    I had a wonderful time hiking Felsman Loop trail today. This 3 mile loop has a little bit of everything: an incredible view of Bishop Peak, the rolling hills that take you to Morro Bay, oak groves, pastures, and plenty of other nature and shade. I usually park at the end of Highland but Patricia street is a better way to access this trailhead. Once parked I took the trail up to the right that starts out on a gravel road that takes you to a narrow dirt trail around a water tower, but for a sharper incline you can go up the left steep trail, which also gives you the option to add Bishop Peak to your hike. I've done Bishop Peak several times which burns jn edible calories but wanted to try this trail that goes in a loop below the peak. I still burned 500 calories on this trail so I thought it was the perfect trail. Plus it still had a nice incline as a challenge and stunning views of SLO and Bishop Peak. If you want to switch up your hike or combine Felsman and Bishop Peak together for a 3-5 mile hike this would be a very challenging and satisfying hike. I plan to do just that in the future.
