Write Up:
This hike started out quite muggy & buggy, especially just after our first stream crossing. We walked for nearly an hour as the air dehydrated us - and then we stopped at a wide open picnic area for a late lunch. After lunch, we completed a couple more miles, passing by a really old, massive tree (see photos), an old abandoned barn, and open farm fields. When it was all over, we walked about 3.5 miles, cutting out the remaining 1+ mile walk because of the length of time it was taking to complete the trail and how we were all feeling by the time we got back near the cars on the trail. We also had 3 dogs accompany us on this hike.
