hiking

I did the full trail today. After the bench, it does get VERY overgrown, so much so that there are several moments you're unsure if you should keep going. But it was definitely worth it. There is a rock past the bench, to stand on you can see miles and miles in every direction. The heart thumping portion comes as you get closer to sea level though, and climbing back up was certainly a cardio workout (especially after I saw a snake and was hightailing it faster). If you have faith, you can find the trail after losing it every time, and the trail ultimately ends in a gorgeous rocky creek that winds all the way back to foothill road. Total time 3 hours.
