Today Phil and I hiked the Avery Creek Loop … 10.8 miles, with 3162′ of elevation gain. It was our second time to hike this particular loop. It is a hard hike. We took a couple of PBJ’s for lunch and lots of water. We didn’t really make good time because we had to keep stopping for mountain bikers to go by. It added a lot of time to the trip.

We started on Pressley Cove trail and did the hike counter clockwise. The leaves are off the trees, so we could see off the ridge down into Avery Creek drainage. You get a great view of the “backside” of Looking Glass Mountain. It was an awesome day.

Personal Best 25.2 Miles Hiked this Week!
