Pachaug—Mt. Misery Loop

★★★★  6.77 miles

i have just three words to say about this hike: hikes with bathrooms! this is a major plus in my book, and got this walk an extra star. this was a pretty strenuous one, with some rugged elevation changes. lot of (dirt) road walking, too. but it went through some pretty spots, and i liked it overall (especially the potty break at the horse camp about 2 miles in). by the way, that last mile or so is a killer. also, this is my last hike in may. can’t believe i only got out 7 times this whole month. i got out LOTS more in january! then again, i managed almost 41 miles in 7 hikes, so there’s that…
