Noble Canyon: Hike and Camp

On Saturday, I decided to head to the southern end of the Noble Canyon National Recreation Trail. I ended up hiking about 6 miles up on the trail, before turning back for a total of 12 miles round trip. It was a lovely hike! Afterwards, I found a nearby campsite and set up my home with some beautiful views as well.

The hike was pretty simple. From the trailhead, I just headed north. A few creek crossings and some rough trail conditions made it an interesting hike, but absolutely worth it for the beauty of the views all over it.

I did succeed in the journey, facing the disappointment that I was about one tenth of a mile from where some of the best views begin last weekend. Oh well!

T-Mobile is a bit slow, but it works, allowing me to take some of the weight off of Verizon. A truly lovely spot!
