|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Hank did really well. I had to take off his pack for part of the loop trail. I appreciate him carrying our water so much more now! He has tough paws from hiking every week. Randolph Path was a mini trench with pine branches in the face for a medium size dog so we opted for a different route on the return. This route gave us access to plenty of places to refill water. Spur trail on our descent has a few cascades for dogs to cool off. |
||On the lower part of Randolph Path on ascent and lower part of Spur on descent. I hate that grassy powerline area which is probably where we picked up a few ticks which I noticed while driving home. I stopped twice to do a tick check. Maybe it was one persistent bugger that kept eluding capture. |
|Lost and Found:
||Jefferson is Hank Williams 45th!|
This is a fine route for dogs to Jefferson. And much prettier than Jewell to Gulfside. I only saw hikers once we got to Edmands Col and up Jefferson we met a few people and 2 over Gulfside. I didn’t realize Gulfside and Israel Ridge Trail coincide for awhile. I should have read the book! I thought i got off trail somehow when i started seeing yellow markers.
Very nice day to be out, pleasant temps, the bugs are slowing down and good views despite the overcast skies.
