Beetree Gap to Snowball Mountain Trail 7.26 Miles
Demanding hike that was great for wildflowers. Also great for being cold, windy and blustery, at least the morning half. I tore my new hiking pants sliding down Hawksbill Rock, not recommended. I think REI sells something called Tencious Tape that will fix it. I thought it was going to be more of a ridgeline hike since I hiked part of it last week. Going in a different way added Big Snowball Mountain which was a hump going uphill and downhill there and back. May shorten the hike for the wildflower hotspots. I just love that area.
