Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Three easy water crossings. Third water fall has a lot of stinging nettle around it and lets just say I figured out the hard way why it's called that. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: I had a hard time believing this was a bushwhack at times. I have done several significantly worse looking trails in the last couple months. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Met the friendliest golden in the parking lot and ran into another cutie on the bushwhack. Great day for dogs, best part about weekend hiking. 
Bugs
Bugs: Swarm of flying ants visited us at the summit for 5 minutes but then they disappeared.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Did someone loose a squirrel hankerchief?

Really enjoyed this hike! Great intro bushwhack! Ended up being 9 miles instead of the 6 listed on AllTrails and Gaia- the track on there was otherwise fantastic to follow along with.
