A hike through Brock Tract, Wilder Forest, Walker Woods and Glen Major. We are getting prepped for a section of the PCT, and I was looking to layout a 10 mile track for a good workout and nailed it with this hike.

Decent scenery with variety as you wind your way through the four conservation areas. A couple of nice viewpoints, some wildlife but we were really focused on conditioning vs sightseeing so other than the waypoints I didn't take many photos.

Next time we are going to carrying a pack with some weight to it!

G21 lookout

One of three places to take a look over the edge of the old gravel pit. Sounds crazy but it is actually kinda neat.

    Do you know if this is maintained in the winter? Safe to do with all the hills along the trail in Jan/Feb?

    No it isn't maintained in the winter and can get quite icy and slippery. Hikers still hit the trails in the winter so there is usually tracks in the snow but you really have to adjust your plans according to the conditions. Hiking poles recommended.
