Coldstream Canyon to PCT and back. 16.1 miles, 2,803 ft gain.
I did this solo run the morning before I left for a 2 week trip to Michigan via train, with my 7 year old twins. Felt like I needed to get some energy out before being trapped in a train for 48 hours with my super hyper children.
It worked for me, although I wish I would have done the same for them!
Parked at Donner State Park, followed Coldstream Road back past the Lost Trail Lodge, and up the Coldstream trail to Tinker knob, and back down.
This is a gorgeous section of trail, in between Lost Trail Lodge and the PCT, that doesn’t get much traffic.
