Okay, so I don't recommend going hiking on unfamiliar trails without some sort of trail map. My roommate Cheronn and I spent our Labor Day hiking on Mt. Hood. We went up to Timberline Lodge and picked a random trail to hike on. 12-15 miles later we were back at the lodge, completely beat. But it was a lot of fun! It was nice to be out in the great outdoors, and I enjoyed it all, besides my aching feet!
