trail running
1 day ago

It’s been a while since I’ve been up this one. It gets REALLY worked over in the winter... ie: muddy, and after 3,500 ft of climbing , you might think you have earned a view.. but NO. The biggest disappointment the first time I ran Hardesty was the anticlimactic summit. Absolutely no view.
Note to USFS/BLM : If ever there was a good reason to fell a few trees, this trail surely has earned it. I think it’s a shame there’s no lookout anymore, and no view at the top.
