After a nice little hike through the woods, the trail comes out at Bobbitt Hole. We were able to cross over a few rocks and branches to go sit on some big rocks in the river for a little mini-picnic with snacks and water and let the kids take off their shoes to feel the icy cold water. There is also a log bench that overlooks the water. The rest of the trail goes along the river and can be followed to get to Dunnagan trail. Good scenery and lots of rocks to hike across. It was very pretty!
Nice trail, I chose this one after seeing pics of the Dunnagan gravesite. It was pretty neat, looks like there are actually 3 other graves right beside this one, but only one has an official headstone. Pretty scenery on the river side of the trail. You can see the pump ruins across the river. I'll definitely be going back to do the trails on the other side of the river! I had 3 kids with me that were tired from already walking the Bobbit Hole trail, so we didn't get to spend as much time on this one.
