Run down by black and yellow Labs Little did I know that, on Saturday, June 13, 2020 at ~9am when I emerged from the Adventure Trail to proceed up the High School Trail that the group of four young people hiking down below me on the High School Trail had let their unleashed and uncontrolled black and yellow labs run wild and free and were way up the trail ahead of them (and me). Unfortunately, I was in the narrowest, single-file, part of the trail between overgrown berry bushes just before the High School Trail opens up to the Transmission Line ROW when the dogs decided they better get back to the owners so not only couldn't they see me but I could only see them at the last minute as they blasted right at me totally out-of-control at full speed brushing my knee and breaking my trekking pole as I tried to lean a little out -of-the-way into the berry bushes as the cowardly owners retreated down the High School Trail. Thanks to all dog owners who keep their animals on leashes.

Friday, March 27, 2020 (last day of hiking before, in spite of Governor Inslee’s proclamation on Monday, March 23 encouraging residents to “to go outside as long as they remain at least six feet from each other,” DNR, largely based on a widely publicized photo of some 35 hikers crowded on Rattlesnake Ledge over the weekend, announced on Wednesday, March 25 that, in light of “crowded trails, people shoulder to shoulder, and large gatherings, . . . all of the nearly 6 million acres of its managed land to the public for at least two weeks”. High School (0.9m) - Adventure (0.7m) - Wetland (0.6m) - Bus (0.3m) - Nook (1.4m) - Talus (0.0) - Section Line (0.8m) -High School (0.9m) = 5.84 mile Loop with inadvertent pause halfway up Nook Trail. Unlike forested Adventure and Wetland Trails and first parts of Bus and Nook Trails, so many baseball/softball-size rocks, especially on Section Trail like a dried up creek bed very hard for walking unless in sturdy Vibram soled footwear.

nice and easy trails that connect, there are some old tractor tires, old 70s Ford car and other car parts along the trail.
