    Hope this isn't a repost but i searched and couldn't find anywhere where there was a hiking thread.

    What trails do you guys and gals like to hike? Post some pics! Tell some stories!

    What gear do you use? Do you hike for exercise? Fun? Hobby?


    Here is one of my favorite hikes.

    Chumash trail- about 1.5 miles (3 round trip). Elevation gain is 1,255. Start from sea level and its literally straight up. Takes about an hour and a half.

    Here is a pic from the bottom

    Pic from the top

    Right now I'm wearing a pair of red wing boots, and i wear a 50lb weight vest and a camel back when i hike.


    Hopefully we can see some good hikes on here!

    We left from the slickrock trailhead (?) and biked for about 1 and a half or two hours. Then climbed and hiked around 45 minutes to get there.

    That's the La Sal Mountain range in the background.

    If you like to bike and hike go there. BEST mountain-biking in the world. And you can do the ATV thing, too.

    Absolutely beautiful. Where is it?

    Edit: Ohhh. I read back in the thread. Yosemite. That's a helluva coincidence. That's where we have been talking about for our next National Park. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    I'll second that. Was up there for 4th of July one year. I had a great time hiking the beehive. Climbing a nearly shear rock face with these giant steel staples hanging out like ladder rungs. Alot of fun!
