Nice, moderate trail. Not much elevation change, but we did burnt hill loop from gorge trail/burnt hill road trailhead. Was lengthy and only challenging in a few muddy spots. Wear shoes you can get wet and muddy. It hadn’t rained much recently but there were still some pretty swampy spots. Was a lovely walk and it was cool to walk amongst the cows. Kerp your dog on the leash in the pasture for sure. Keep moving though - they don’t like you lingering, especially when your puppy keeps barking. We moved along swiftly and they turned to let us know they were watching. Nice round trip. Several decent primitive sites on burnt hill road. Blueberry patch was full when we came sat at 8 am. We didn’t plan to stay there - too close for us - but we wanted to check it out. The only difference between the campground and primitive sites was the toilet. We, as it seems everywhere we go, heard so much gunfire from a campsite up the road. Hundreds of rounds. Varying calibers. Sounded like they were getting wound up for a wild night when we headed out at 6 pm. I don’t mind a lil shooting- but good gravy. Just so much.
