July 21, 1996
Nine other people joined me on this fairly easy 12-mile hike.
(The 700-ft. elevation gain occurs only at the end of the trail, switch backing up to a logging
road and clear cut.)
The trail is well shaded and follows first Hills Creek Reservoir and then Larison Creek the majority
of the way.
On our return, we took a very refreshing swim in the reservoir to cool our heels.
Hikers were Lucy, Karen & Dick Rayle, Cheryl Berry, Jake Dudell, Kurt Cyress, Mart Hansen,
Ginny Saunders, Jim Fritz, and leader Denise Sevigny.
