HikingBugsOver grown

Overgrown, terrible bugs, and could have been marked much better. Initial path is overgrown and filled with poison ivy. Bugs were terrible. One of our teen daughters wore pants and a long sleeve shirt with hood. She used bug spray and a repellent bracelet. She is covered with 20+ bug bites under her shirt and so many more all over her body. We were walking just before it started to rain and it was a very humid day,ayne this is part of it. if it was not for the All Trails app map we would not have known where to go except for two red markers along the way. Some pretty wild flowers at the beginning.

Fairly easy and level terrain. No restroom facilities. Dog friendly. Shotgun hunting. Birds, birds, birds. Wetlands so can be muddy in low places.
