I did this hike on the shortest day of the year on a rainy cold and icy trail with a 35lb bag that was sopping wet when I was 13. The hardest thing I have ever done especially since all of the residents piers were on the land. This was an amazing hike and when you’re done Troy can go for dinner at sprechers.
