||Bring water and watch ledgy spots. Make sure your dog does not wander over into Cold River Camp, which is private. |
|Lost and Found:
||Confidence lost the other day was now found! ||
||Some sections of these trails seemed steeper than what the map showed. But this was a good thing, as I found them not difficult at all. It was like climbing the stairs at home. |
This place is a gem! These smaller hikes on this side of 113 are great (Blueberry Mtn, etc). The footing is good, the views of the Baldies and beyond are excellent. The only way this could possibly have been better would be to either have come here during blueberry season or foliage season. Several ledges to relax on and enjoy the sun. The dam at the beginning is a pretty piece of work. Just be careful not to wander onto the AMC property; it is for guests only. They have good signage so you should have no problem determining where the boundary is.
If I lived in the area I would come here several times a week. It's that good.
