This Saturday, I will hike the Quartz Ridge Trail. Yes, it is an actual hike, it is not one of my jokes. Meet me directly at the 40th Street trailhead:
- Exit State Route 51 onto Shea.
- Drive east 0.8 miles to 40th Street.
- Turn south and follow 40th Street 1 mile to the trailhead parking lot.
If the parking lot is full, park on the street. Or you can circle around and eventually a spot will open.
Distance: 5.5 miles
Elevation Gain: 550 feet
Difficulty: Moderate. It contains one steep section that is not suitable for beginners.
Dogs are welcome on this hike. We should be finished around 1:00 PM, so you'll have plenty of time to finish your holiday shopping that evening.
