So glad to be back the trail and on our quest to walk the entire rum runners trail. We were out early on a wonderful Sunday morning. The trail has had a hard spring. A couple of places need grooming but still a very easy walk.

Good trail. A few lumps, bumps, squirrels and Swooping finches to keep it interesting. Watch out for the loose gravel Hubbard’s bound on the Ingramport Connector bridge.
