Patrolling the Wilderness?

I was on patrol this past weekend in the King Range Wilderness and quite the patrol is was… 21 miles… 5,000 feet of elevation gain by combining the King Crest, Buck Creek, Lost Coast and Rattlesnake Ridge Trails. Oh and you thought the King Range was all flat, beach hiking. Not this hike.

I inspected portions of our upland trail network to develop project plans for our summer trail crew and volunteer wilderness rangers. Now the view from my office desk is nice, but the views from the field… oh so much better!

I hope you enjoy the views as well, Justin
