Write Up:

A couple of last minute drops lightened the crew load, but the it didn't lighten the night hike enjoyment...we strolled out of BC's main lot at 8:18p.m. so we were hiking the whole time "AFTER" sun set. We only saw a handful of mountain bikers (all super cool about sharing the MF, SL trails) during our 5.5 mile trek, and we only SAW the moon at the end of the hike (because the tree canopy was so full - next Full Moon hike will be at Stone Mountain for that reason). Hike stats from STRAVA:
Distance: 5.5miles
Avg Speed/Pace: 3.0 mph/19:55min/mi
Elevation Gain: 556'
Calories Burned: 720 (for me)
Fastest mile: 16:39 (mile 1, go figure)
Light use: 82%
Fun had: 100%
