    Can't MTB, go hike. Hewletts and Greyrock TR

    With the forecast calling for near 60F temps this past weekend I was looking forward to getting out for some hiking since the trails are still too snowy/muddy to ride.

    Sat I was planning on Greyrock but the temp inversion kept me doubting if we'd ever make it to 40. Around noon I decided to drive up the canyon and found Greyrock TH full so I drove to Hewlett's. There were only 1/2 doz cars there, so I grabbed my pack and headed out.

    It's the first time I've ever walked it vs biking and the first time I've been there on a weekend in many years. 90% of the lower trail was solid ice or hardpack snow, although there was one lone set of tire tracks. What I did notice was that even though there were only ~12 other hikers out, they all had multiple dogs. There must have have been 25-30 dogs running around. At least they were all relatively well behaved,

    Sun., I hit up Greyrock with much lighter traffic.


    15 mi in 2 days and ~ 3540' climbing.

    Love that fourth pic! Hiking is real different from biking fo'sho'. Different muscles, way different pace. Give one time to stop and smell the lichen.
