Training Hike 1 - Solo

South Mountains State Park - Mile 0 - Apr 21st, 2018

This hike was setup to check my pace on the trail. The goal was to go from Upper Falls site to Jacobs Branch site. 2 miles Friday, 10 miles Saturday and 4 miles on Sunday.
Friday's hike consisted of taking the staircase to Upper Falls campsites. Saturday's hike consisted of Raven Rock to Benn Knob Trail. Sunday's hike was the Shinny Creek Trail which is one of the best trails in the park. It has multiple river crossings, some with a bridge and others without.
My average pace for this hike was 1 mile every 30 minutes. Lesson learned........slow my pace when on the trail. The 10 mile hike would have been more enjoyable had I slowed down a bit. Less aches and pains with more moments to take in the views.
