Great hike, challenging! Make sure you take extra water. Hiked up to Bordeaux mountain road and back. Isolated, did not see any other hikers.

Drove down the road to find a scenic view and came upon a drug deal. Scary and glad we made it out of there alive. May want to avoid the dirt roads that look like they are leading to know where. Vangens Seattle WA
