Friday, October 18, 2013 — Alum Cave Trail

20131020-112510.jpgMy ankle has improved so much, that we decided to put it to the test by day hiking Alum Cave Trail all the way to LeConte Lodge and back. The total distance hiked was 11 miles. Total elevation gain is approximately 2560′. It gets a little steep in places. I would rate this trail moderate to strenuous.

We thoroughly enjoyed the hike up, stopping at the bluffs for about 10 minutes. I logged a ” personal best” hiking time to the lodge of exactly 2 1/2 hours! We weren’t very winded either.
