Beautiful hike! We were going to camp at island lakes but there was a snow crossing that didn't look safe so we turned around and camped at mystic. Spent two nights and explored the area and fished. Really enjoyed our time and look forward to going back. Had a few good afternoon mountain thunderstorms.

I am an intermediate rider who does not enjoy trails with lots of rock piles and boulders, particularly if they require you to dismount. The little gunpowder trail on the white blazed side of the water is quite rocky. From the entrance to the quarry trail branch point, there are a number of minor water crossings that are strictly rock piles. I attempted to take the quarry trail, but the elevation is too steep and rocky. Perhaps an advanced rider could tackle it, but not me. Returned to the main trail, which is a mostly nice ride with lots of roots and a few more rocky sections. I found the little gunpowder trail and loop on the far side of the water to be much more enjoyable.

On Oct. 17 the stream was Stock with 500 Trout. I got lucky and found 1 Trout and 1 Bass. I only kept the Trout. The limit in this section is 5 Trout per-day. The Stocking section is from the Viaduct to the Dam. The D.N.R. wants you to stay 400 feet away from the Dam and I beat that's where the Trout are. Due to the Bloede Dam project and the removal of two other Dams in 2010, stream conditions are in very poor shape. When wading through the stream the sill and sand is 6 inches deep and washes out as you walk. The water is extremely low due to no rain and all the honey holes are now filled in with sand. Look at all the sandbars in the photos. Even the 6 foot hole by the Swinging Bridge is gone. Daniel's maybe a better option but it's not as accessible as this area. Time to Retire this section of the Patapsco.

Took off Friday 10-13-17 at 6:30 A.M. with a headlight and backpack. Spent the night at 2B. Resume hiking at 6 A.M. and returned to Red Bridge at 10:47 A.M. Night hiking made it possible for me to get 2B and avoid the incoming rain Saturday. 4 vs. 5 is due to the lack of trail markings on the Manistee Trail Side. Look forward to Easter Weekend.

Beautiful fall colors around the lake and just a touch of snow up there but easily passable. Gorgeous!
