I seen a nice trail last week on the ‘gram. I had to ask which trail it was. It looked instagram-worthy and wasn’t closed or covered in snow like I expected it to be in the mountains.
I checked the Blaine County Trails site and could not find it listed – and most of the trails are closed so Google to the rescue.
Ok. I can handle steep and physically challenging. I just completed Robie Creek for the 8th time!
The steepness was no joke! It was very steep I had to stop and take a couple of breaks. We went “straight up” then took the switchbacks down. But it was a nice little jaunt that caused some serious huffing and puffing.

It is seriously steep. It was a slow climb for my fat butt.
But the view from the top just can’t be beat! Downside, no shade on this trail. This is not a middle of summer noon-time hike. But early spring, with the snow just starting to melt – its perfect. It was very rocky and the other half did this in Teva’s. I’m glad I had my Hoka’s because I kept kicking the rocks and I slipped a couple of times with my bad footing.

This trail is a must do if you are in the area. It is a good workout without having to suffer through lots of miles. I look forward to trying out more new-to-me trails this summer.
When was your last good trail run?
