I'll be the first to admit that I have limited hiking knowledge and stay within my capabilities. Having said that, this story just does not add up. How does an experienced hiker get "lost" when hiking to the Goat Canyon Trestle and is found on the tracks?

In 3 days there must have been at least a couple dozen other people who hiked/bicycled/motorcycled to the trestle.....it does not add up.

As someone rather skilled at getting lost, I'm giving this older guy from out of country a little slack. It was a mid week hike and there may have not been anyone around. Sounds like he let someone know where he was going and when he would be back. Obviously he should have prepared a speck better but at least he had the sense to stay alive out there for a couple days till found.
