July 14 – Around Dewdney Trail
This isn’t a full hike as I only planned on spending 4-5 hours out there, but I was curious to check out the Dewdney Trail from the Cascade parking lot in Manning Park as I had only been there once before when it was far too cold. The Dewdney Trail seemed pretty easygoing as it is also a horseback trail, but once you turn off onto the Whatcom Trail you start gaining elevation real fast. I went up a ways for the exercise but if you plan on reaching the end of the trail, you’ll need to overnight it. I would like to run this to the end at some point but I’m not geared for doing that kind of trip just yet.
