Our hike today was just about 5/miles. We drove up to the top of Gold Camp and then caught the trail, well really more of a washout. It is a pretty decent incline on the way up and being that we hadn't done this hike in a while, we did have to stop and catch our breath.
I don't know what the elevation gain was, but per my health tracker app, it said we climbed 40 flights of stairs. When we got to the top we stopped and had a little snack. We then worked our way down the other side of the mountain down to High Drive Road. Pebbles had a blast today as we didn't see anyone on the trail. She had no issue climbing up and would stop and keep looking back to see if we were coming.
