This is a 6-month update on my “project” to hike the Bay Area Ridge Trail. My update covers the period from 16 July 2012 through 16 January 2013. During this 6-month period my hiking was back to normal following my hip fracture.
The stats box at the beginning of this post contains a summary of my hike statistics for the 6-month period. Continuing to summarize the hikes by geography, the distribution of hikes was like this:
I also want to include a summary of all of my Bay Area Ridge Trail hikes to date. First here is a summary of statistics:
And here is the distribution of hikes to date:
Quite a few of my hikes this time (9 out of 15) were in the North Bay, which is the largest “region” of the Ridge Trail. As I hike more segments, the continuous – or at least adjacent – sections I’ve hiked are now starting to link up. Also, during this 6-month period I passed the halfway mark. It’s challenging to identify favorites when there is so much variety. And the experience of a given trail can vary throughout the year as well, with different weather and terrain conditions. In any case I continue to enjoy my experience hiking the Bay Area Ridge Trail – stay tuned for further adventures!
