Hike Report - Horsestail falls
Took a weekend off from riding and took my son Gage up to Twin Bridges on Hwy 50. The falls there, Horsetail falls has a great hiking trail that turn into some rock climbing along the falls.
We headed up Saturday morning arriving at the trail head about 0930, it was already warming up but not to bad. The trail starts very easy but soon your climbing up large slopes of granite along the river. The scenery is exceptional and the water crystal clear.
Gage started off the climb very energetic but as some of the pictures show was running out of gas by the time we got half way up. He was sucking water and just about well done by the top. As for my self I hid the fact the I was sucking wind most of the way up but it was the hike back down that did my legs/knees in.
This area is considered Desolation wilderness and is very much back country, in the morning there were only a few out on the trail. By afternoon there were quiet a few day hikers out but unlike the crowed National Park this place is very peaceful.
