First to Review

Like many trails the 1st leg of the trail was a bit mundane, uninspiring, and a marshy swamp pit. Part of this has been corrected with a new trail head that avoids the marshy swamp pit. The start of the new trail head can be found on the return trip of my recording. Parts of the original trail are the same and some parts have been rerouted. The updated trail cut seems to be relatively recent, and the trail markets are abundant. The middle portion of the hike had great views of the coastline. The last section was just a path to get to the abandoned community. The best part of the hike is the sense of remoteness and seclusion in an otherwise uninhabited native habitat. Other than trails and markers, the landscape is intact and in its natural form virtually unscathed by humans. The weather was a bit blustery today but otherwise it was a good day for a hike.
