First, the trail is absolutely beautiful, but the mosquitoes were other worldly. Despite reading previous reviews of the mosquito issue, I thought it wouldn’t be a problem due to our trip taking place during early Fall. However, I was sadly mistaken. I wanted to take more pictures than I posted in this recording, but slowing down below 5 MPH to take a picture led to being swarmed by dozens of mosquitoes within seconds. I literately couldn’t open the camera app on my phone fast enough before I was covered, and that was with a liberal coating of Deep Woods Off from head to toe. I couldn’t imaging going anywhere near the trail on foot during month outside of November through March. It finally got so bad that we had to turn back less than half way through to end the suffering. Perhaps I’ll try this trail again after a good hard freeze.
