|Date of Hike:
||Friday, June 12, 2015|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||plenty of parking even on a Friday |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||a few water crossings. Would definitely recommend higher cut waterproof boots for Falling Waters. Could get away with trail sneakers for sure, just be ready to do a lot of rock hopping/ avoidance as Falling Waters has certainly earned it's name.
None on other trails mentioned. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Trail's in great shape. |
||saw a couple of dogs. One Westie (small terrier) |
||pesky black flies per-usual. kept moving to avoid them. None really on the ridge since there was a brisk wind. |
|Lost and Found:
||Sunscreen is a great idea if you're out on the ridge in the sun for a while. Ridge is very exposed to weather. |
I would not have gone down Falling Waters, it was consistently steep with plenty of technical trail alongside waterfalls/ brooks. Greenleaf has snacks and a faucet for water re-fills. Old Bridle was a nice decent.
