Comments: Sorry about the tick theme here, I found one crawling on my arm near my car at the trailhead. There are some blow downs, a duck under and walk arounds. The trail goes through the woods up to the woods road and then stays on the woods road until coming to a work trailer and the trail turns right at this intersection and heads straight up the hill. The woods road is quite grassy and many times I was thinking "I should be here in winter". At the top of this long straight section of uphill the path turns left in teh woods and there is a sign here pointing the way. From here the foot bed is not well worn and I was thankful for the orange flagging tied to the trees below the blazes. I didn't think the blazes were that easy to follow due to branches and their leaves blocking the line of sight. Mine was not exciting to me. A hand screen was resting near one of the holes. This and Rollo Falls Path have me up to date for redlining RMC trails.
