I’ve experienced my first hike in this mountain back in 2016 and thought that it will be my last.
But after two years, I came back, and this is what happened.
As a newbie hiker, I think that the Flattop Mountain can test your ability to handle steep trails.
Hiking up the mountain
Hiking up this mountain has different levels. The first part was easy because I was just trekking the whole quarter trail.
The second part was average and bearable. It requires me to use the built-in stairs, but I had to be extra careful because there was no handle and some parts are a little steep.
Once I reached the half, I came across the hardest part of the trail which was rock climbing. This took a while because I was thinking too much about where to step. But honestly, it wasn’t too bad and I was just being a coward.
Reaching the top
The best part of hiking is definitely accomplishing the whole trail and reaching the top. The view was spectacular, and the blow of the wind refreshed my mind.
The Flattop Mountain was definitely a challenge for me when I first came in 2016.
But then I felt more confident and accomplished after going back and experiencing it the 2nd time.
I realized that I had the bravery to do things that can actually risk my life.
It gave me the courage to explore more and do a little adventure from time to time.
