A hike of Herman Creek Trail. This was my peaceful walk in the woods trail until the fire of 2017. I started on this hike with mind set of doing a walk in the woods but it was another difficult trail going through burn area. I do have give a shoat out to the trails crews that got this trail open again. I could see place where their work turn a lost trail back to a trail with a tread to follow. I went as far up as Whisky Creek and turned around there. I got in 13.5 miles with 2300 ft gain in 7 hours. Biggest happing on this hike was seeing a Momma bear and her two cubs climbing up from top of a waterfall when they heard me coming. I have never seen a bear in the wild before.
