Steve v. at Crater Rim Loop:
“We lucked out and didn’t have the expected rain until we are back at the car. For a 109 Walk book hike, this is was longer and tougher than I had expected and I seriously question the stats. It was a good trip, but mostly due to the fact we were out and had good company, more than the merits of the trail itself. Going to Purebread in Function Junction didn’t hurt either.
Though the notable feature of this trip is the suspension bridge, I think this one might put the route outlined in 109 Walks aside and simply park at the Logger’s Lake trailhead and do a quick 20 minute detour to see it. After that, then do a less than 1 hour part of the trail that overlooks Logger’s Lake. In the summer this could be both a nice place to find a breeze, and to swim in the lake itself. I doubt I’d return to do it any other way (we actually got a bit lost at one point with too many roads and trails criss-crossing). Erica, Harris, and Teresa joined me for this trip.”
