 Bard plus Two   

From the Herman's Gulch TH we hiked along the Watrous Gulch trail for a little over a mile then busted up the west slope of Parnassus to the summit. From the Parnassus summit we hiked east to Bard's summit. After enjoying some chocolate we headed back to Parnassus and onto Woods. From Woods we decided to make a loop of it and headed down Woods' south slopes back to the Watrous Gulch trail. Our trip covered roughly 10.5 miles and 5000 vertical.
