I'm curious how far the nearest non- urban trailhead is to where you live.

What's an "urban" trailhead? Here in LA we can get pretty far back into the San Gabriels from a trailhead next to someone's house...

I remember from my college days packing in the cucamonga wilderness, some rugged & pretty country...I guess by urban trailhead I meant paved, dodging rollerbladers and timetrialers.
Just for the record it's about 3 miles to a trail shared with horses and mtn bikers and about 8 to a wilderness area here in north central washington state.

In Anchorage, Alaska it's only a few miles to a number of trailheads.

My theory here is anyone who lives a bit away from a trail just isn't going to respond but I also believe there is some kind of outdoor experience close to us all.

A lot of it depends on definitions.

Actually, a survey function on this web site would be kind of cool.

45 miles to the AT. 3 hours to a decent wilderness area.

Approximately one mile to my favorite State Park with the most difficult trails in the state. 45 minutes drive to the A.T.

As near as I remember I spent about 6 years on or near that hill, before that I lived in New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah. I've been in Washington State for 28 years, right in the middle. I am still climbing, the equipment has gotten better, the technique a little worse so I'm at about the same place. I assume you are not a little squeek anymore and have a healthy interest in clean living and lightweight backpacking. No reason to hijack this ol' thread, if you are inclined e-mail me at
