When you get off of I-5 at Siskiyou Ave in Dunsmuir, there’s a tiny sign announcing the presence of Hedge Creek Falls. This sign does not do it justice. This little waterfall is one of the most scenic leg stretchers on this stretch of highway.
So you wanna hike the Laugavegur trail in 2 days? No problem. I did it in August, and it was fantastic.
The Laugavegur trail was The Thing that I wanted to do on my Iceland trip. I saw photos on Outdoor Research earlier this year, and I was sold. The day that I booked my airplane tickets was the day I started booking spots on the Laugavegur trail. I had to do it, no matter what.
