The Wah Ki’o Trail is one of the nicest and relaxing trail that have beautiful landscape of table mountain, big meadow that goes far to the other side of the mountain and the view to the lake. The Wah Ki’o trail is located at the San Joaquin River Gorge Management Area.
The trail is approximately over 4 miles from the parking lot. What I love about the trail was the traffic. It was calm. There were many hikers to the Bridge trail, but as soon as I made the turn to the Wah Ki’o trail and hike further to the mountains, no other hikers came from the other side or came after, except for one biker. Another thing was the view to the mountain. Its structure and unique texture made it beautiful. It stood out from other mountains.
I did not complete the trail due to a free ranger that blocked the trail. I just needed half a mile to go and I’m done. Just half a mile! I moved in closer to the free ranger thinking it would move, but it didn’t budged. I stopped and turned back. Worst case scenario would be getting kicked in the face.
I hiked a total of 8 miles in 4 hours and 53 minutes burning 698 calories. I had fun. I was tire and burned out. The last mile to the parking lot was a killer. The trail goes up the mountain side. Boy, it was a great workout. I hope that one day, maybe later in the year, I will need to find a time to complete the Pa’san Ridge Trial. When it comes, I will be prepare for the challenge.
