Okay... that is the elevation gain up to Ortega Peak!
Should that be the goal?
Or... should we hike 1.07 miles up the trail and dive into our assorted pies? Rounding out the hikes 3.14 with the return trip... hmmm. Got a feeling it will be the latter!
Really, this will kick off my 20 weeks of training on this overly steep trail... though those hikes will not be posted, folks are welcome to join me on that Progressive journey... I'll go higher each week. I'll carry ever heavier weights.
Bring a fork!
