|Lost and Found:
||Met up with a Ranger at the Thoreau bridge and he was taking pictures of bear prints in the sand. Apparently a bear had helped himself to some people food the night before at Stillwater Junction. |
The North end of Thoreau Falls Trail is pretty rough with a couple of big washouts. There was also one confusing spot where the trail, herd paths and washouts converge. Stay to the right and slab uphill toward the NE.
It was my first time on Twin Brook. A really nice trail that should have views when the leaves drop. Many blowdowns but all easily steeped over.
I saw alot of people (and pups) yesterday and everyone was having a great time. Must be the weather!
