Out and back overnight from Leota down to New Chapel trailhead- 17 miles. Cached water near New Chapel trailhead and camped near the creek there. Pretty nice hike. Numerous downed trees over the trail and several over grown areas. Overall pretty tough trail.

Love all the KT but this is one of my favorite, I really need a hike to clear my head trails. The trails are clearly marked and had some debris but easy to skirt around.

I hiked this portion a couple years back with a buddy and it kicked our butts. We still had an awesome time though. Not for the weak.
