If you think you are a slow hiker or are uncertain on rugged terrain or need breaks, this hike would not be one you would like.

Elevation Gain:  1033 feet

This hike combines my last 5.2 mile along the river hike with my last 4.7 mile up and down criss crossing the hill hike to create D3 elevation change and D4 distance.
