Hardly Hardy Ridge

I’m usually not one to talk smack about a hike, but this one hardly makes the cut.


This hike comes highly recommended for those looking for solitude in a sometimes crowded Gorge. I’m guessing no one goes here because it’s not really that nice.

I don’t mind 2000 vertical feet and I don’t necessarily mind a trailhead fee, but I do mind walking miles and miles of gravel roads, I’m not fond of hiking through all second-growth forests either. We did it, but we stopped short of the full summit by 1/2 mile and I’m ok with that.

The heat/humidity and bugs at the start didn’t help.
