Nice! Stinkin Lincoln. Did you make it to the lake? One of the most overgrown, secluded trails in the park. And what a steep climb to start. The lake is beautiful though.
According to the 2019 trail status report this hike is now 80% sun exposure due to the Sprague Fire. I can't imagine that!

It's not backcountry, and it's a mountain bike trail... a rare beast here in nebraska.

Hidden Canyon in Winter

View attachment 79251
Pics from there kinda freak me out. I tried to get into Hidden Canyon at the start of a trip in the first week of March 2011, after what I think was record snow. Turned back when the trail was completely blocked by a pile of snow covering the trail like \. Had to go rent snowshoes later that day.
Later, I saw pictures with those chains. I didn't remember any chains there, or the trail being sloped, or quite that narrow. 'Cause I was apparently walking on a shelf of snow and ice...
There was no snow the next October, though!:)

Mt. Ellinor trail. Olympic National Forest in Washington State.

Took a hike with a hundred of my closest friends. Can't believe how many people hike this trail these days. I believe my last time up was mid to late 90's.

This is not a long hike, but it is steep. From the upper trailhead you gain about 1000ft in the first mile, around 1500ft gain in just under a mile to finish off.

This week we spent 4 days hiking in The Needles, Canyonlands with 3 nights camping at Squaw flat CG under the full moon. It was super bright at night, with just 1/2 hour of stargazing. Hiking was amazing, as always. Here are some trail photos:

Day1, Devil’s pocket loop from Elephant Hill TH

Very hot and sandy walk, but incredible with all the grass backlit. Rick is out in the distance on the trail.

Day 2, Peekaboo to Salt Creek, lots of sandstone walking. Saddle between Squaw Flat canyon and Lost Canyon, a photogenic spot as @Jackson knows.... Rick will have better photos

Short trail climb, Salt creek and our campground (Montana) neighbors behind Rick.
We had beer and chatted around a fantastic campfire that night

A couple of exposed sections on the Peekaboo trail, one is worse than this

Very cool spot, close to The Needles. It’s getting time to hike more off trail in the Needles :)
