Ascent Trip Report

Started at the end of Devil's Path parking area. Followed DP up and over WK to Diamond notch falls and down to the parking area on Spruceton Rd? where I had stashed my bike in the woods for the 3-4mi return to my car. The day was very hot and really felt like the most draining day of hiking I've done. I guess I underestimated the effect the temp had on me. The hike was nice but felt really long. The bike ride out was all downhill; I pre-planned it as such so I wouldnt have an all uphill ride back to the car, though the first mile was unpaved it was not too bad.
