Fri, Feb 4 2022 - The Pond and Island Ford (View Original Event Details)|
Due to a variety of issues the two of us started a few minutes late. The advantage of the late start was that it stopped raining. Starting now at the Visitor center we looped around ending up at Hewitt Pond than back to the Visitor Center. As we were leaving, we decided to drive up to the first parking lot and hike Island Ford – North. We drove to that lot and hike until we encountered a series of blowdowns covered with poison ivy laying across about 6 feet of muddy trail, we than returned the way we came. The only other people we encountered we a group from the park conducting chain saw training and a guy with a dog on the north trail, otherwise the park was ours.
