After a illness i am going to have to start again. The Gap is one of my favorite short hikes. It fits one of my criteria for a hike. Its steep at 2000 feet up. Also steep goiung down with a creek crossing at the bottom before we get back on the trail.
2000 feet gain
Steep dirt banks
Steep loose boulder fields
Its a pretty hike but some have had trouble with the hike.
4.5 miles but tough ones.
