On 7/14/18, I hiked the trail starting at the Ponca put-in (b/c a cool dip in the river was to be the reward for an expected onerous hike). Nice trail until I reached where the BRT crosses private land. I lost the trail and attempted to re-connect for 30+ minutes. No luck, so I returned and continued on the BRT to Steel Creek. Really nice trail! Then I returned for a refreshing dip. Look forward to hiking the BRT from Ponca to Pruitt (in various day hikes). And doing the ORT.
