"The most important reason for going from one place to another is to see what's in between, and they took great pleasure in doing just that.  Then one day someone discovered that if you walked as fast as possible and looked at nothing but your shoes you would arrive at your destination much more quickly.  Soon everyone was doing it. They all rushed down the avenues and hurried along the boulevards seeing nothing of the wonders and beauties of their city as they went." - Norton Juster

Just replace avenues with trail, boulevards with log bridges, and city with nature and this sums up the hike.
