This was a great hike, the weather was warm and sunny. The trail is all signal track with lots of switch backs and wends its way along the cliff faces of the bowl. You’re either climbing or descending, very few areas of level walking.
There was a sign warning us of a bridge being washed out and the trail was closed at Wolf creek. Well heading off with the Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Rider spirit. If there is a bridge out we can cross the creek.
The trail started out with several switch backs for a mile and a half. We then crossed over a ridge and entered a bowl.
As the trail went around points and crossing several small creeks all with nice water falls as we make our way around the back side of the bowl. The trail had a few fallen trees nothing too bad, it was very apparent very few people hiked this trail, even as grand as the views were inside the bowl. There was no one else on the trail.
We then reached the North East end of the bowl and started to drop into the Wolf creek valley. This was a steep descend with switch backs. When we reach Wolf creek it was easily cross-able. A functional small foot bridge had been built by other hikers out of small logs.
We reached the trailhead just after 8:00 PM, just as it was starting to get dark. The 10.2 mile hike took just over 6 hours.
6 hours, experiencing truly natural freedom of being as part of nature and as close to with the natural world as person achieve in an afternoon.
