Comments
Comments: Our objective was to complete a 'loop' of redlines we needed to fill in. Ended up being 1-2 miles longer than expected due to trail closure from the top of Bear Hill down to Ferret so we had to follow the switchbacking bike trail instead. Also had to turn back when encountering the mudpile and ATV damage on south Lost. Otherwise, accomplished out goal in about 9.5 miles!
