Gets a lot of traffic. Sexist graffiti on boulders. HUNTERS. Bicycles. Clearly some group fancies themselves witches and has fire pit encircled with chairs built out of rocks with one adorned for the leader replete with a stick canopy. There has been racist graffiti here in the past, but that is typically removed with a day or two, not so the sexist garbage. I would not bring kids for this reason.
It is a shame. The trail to the fire tower is a very short walk up and a very short walk down. For those days when the terrain is too slippery or the gunfire is too prolific, or the men are yelling too loudly, the fire road is a quick option. This used to be a nice, quiet place. WEAR HUNTER ORANGE. PUT HUNTER ORANGE ON YOUR DOG. Lots of dogs.
Whole up and back, even on the longer trails, is under an hour and not that challenging, but can be slippery.
ARSENIC is in the soil here. Wash your dogs’ feet, clean your boots before getting in your car. Don’t use unmarked or closed trails for this reason. Minimal testing has been done and is underway. The trails that are closed have been deemed unsafe. There is a tiny sign at the trail head.
Crazy with biting flies.
