5 Hike Challenge

From the CDLT website:

Enjoy the stunning beauty of the Wenatchee Foothills by participating in our 2013 Hiking Challenge! We have chosen five trail sections for you to hike. As you complete each trail section, check it off a postcard (that can be picked up at the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust office at 18 N. Wenatchee Ave.), and proceed to the next one. After you have completed all five trail sections, you can pay a nominal fee for a limited-edition t-shirt noting your accomplishment! The shirts will be available at the Land Trust office. You can also print your own English or Spanish version of the postcard at home!

I've already completed three of the trails: Dry Gluch, Jacobson Preserve and Saddle Rock. With the aid of a smart phone and an app called Map My Run (or hike) in my case I have a record of my hikes. Saddle Rock has been the most challenging so far. There are a few steep spots and some elevation gain, but it can easily be accomplished in a couple of hours. Oh and there are photo opportunities galore!
