As a result of avoiding cabin fever during this intense winter, next season's adventures are going to be well planned.
I took the chance to explore this trail on the final weekend before the nesting closure period. I recommend the CCW loop (upper to lower) to reward yourself with a view of Cape Horn Falls near the end of the hike. Beautiful (windy) views of the Gorge from the several viewpoints along the loop. The persistent ice/snow storms this season have made micro-spikes a common sight on any Gorge trail; I certainly wish I had a pair to make the trail less like a slide.
