Eat, drink, dig, hike, climb. Archaeologist from Portland, Oregon.
Quite a few blow outs and landslides, but they were passable. Just FYI, our GPS trackers put us at 11.4 miles all in, rather than the advertised 9, following the same loop on the map provided here. Great hike! Definitely start on the horsetail falls side and go UP to ROA. Going down looked less than desirable!
