Appalachian Trail Map

Journal Entry

Training Day 16: June 14
Today I hiked from Palmer Lake, CO to the reservoirs and then a couple of miles past on a jeep trail.
I had a 28 pound pack which made the first 4 miles seem like 10 because it was all up hill. Coming back down hill was also a little tricky due to all the loose feldspar on the trail. The temp was in the low 80s when I started out but dropped into the upper 50s by the time I finished. There was a nice camp site about 2.5 miles up the trail and I may just hike back and camp there and then go on to see where the road leads next. I know it eventually comes out in Woodland Park, CO. I will probably make a loop to Mt. Herman Road and back to Palmer Lake. I need to get maps to find distances.
