I went out to the Gorge today to get some hiking in. Coach advised 5-6 hours and Laura suggested going out to Nesmith Point. My guide book describes the difficulty as ‘strenuous’ and traffic as ‘light’. The weather prediction called for rain off and all day and that’s pretty much how it went.
The hike up was indeed strenuous. The path was very narrow in some places and the drop offs were a little scary. Even taking it slow, I still slipped around a bit and found myself on my butt more than once. The views did not disappoint.
It was a nice day. I recommend this hike.
