las trampas: hike from hell

June 25, 2011

Distance: 8.59 miles

We call this the hike from hell because our three to four hour hike turned into a 6.5 hour hike! There is a hike in our book called Corduroy Hills that is rated very difficult and is 6 miles. We decided to do a shorter (so we thought) hike today. Well one wrong turn put us on the Corduroy Trail and so we ended up doing 8.59 miles!! The difficult route + some! Boy were we pooped!!
