#8 – Red Jacket Trail

And we’re done! We saved this little .8 mile hike for last, figuring we could duck into the Admin Building after to claim our prizes – a water bottle and a sticker. (I gave them both to Emily.)

This trail hugs the side of the hill, so even though it is short, it is a little intimidating: one mis-step and you could be rolling down the hill!

We started the Allegany 18 Challege on June 15 – the first official day of my retirement. And we finished before the end of summer. We had hoped to finish before Emily started back to school, but a brief illness and some aching muscles delayed a couple of the hikes. Still, WE DID IT!

Thanks to Bob who provided rides for the hikes that were not loops, and to my friend Sue who hiked one of the non-loop trails with us, providing the second car so we didn’t have to hike it twice.
