The trails in this section of the park are HIGH and DRY. - The New Ridge Extension is now tree brazed in ORANGE. - The New Ridge (John Smith Marker loop) trail is brazed in GRAY paint. - My entire hike today revealed all freshly painted tree brazes. - I hike up the New Ridge but came down the old Ridge Waterbars. - The old trail was the only section that had any muddy or standing water. - I recommend you return down the hill the same way you go up at the Playground parking lot.
