Cherry Orchard Hike

Lori and I got out for a short hike in the Gorge. Cherry Orchard trail is on Friends of Gorge property. It is only about four miles and a thousand feet gain. It is known for its spectacular views of the Gorge. Except on days when it is fogged in and that is what we had. But there was no rain and mild winter temperatures so for around here that is a win. We ran into a Washington Trail Association work crew that was widening the trail. The new cut trail gave us a lot of mud to deal with but in time the work they did will lead to an improve trail.
