hiking

The first mile up to the pot rocks is easy and offered a few fun side views for my family and I to take pictures of like a the tree with a huge hole in it, a fallen tree we practiced climbing over, and a mini climb up to an interesting rock.

The pot rocks were great fun! We stayed for about and hour and saw a handful of people during that time. Afterwards we packed up and headed to the overlook and continued the hike. My dad turned back at this point and it was a good thing because the next four miles would have been too much.

Almost as soon as you pass the overlook, the path becomes covered with fallen trees. It’s easy enough to spot the next trail blaze across the trees and navigate over them. We had a leashes beagle and he did well on this part. Once we got to the half way mark of the trail the path disappeared. We ended up wandering around for a bit before my cousin went ahead and crossed a fallen tree over a stream and found the blue blazes. We crossed too and my cousin carried our dog over.

After this point up until we reached the pot rocks again the trail was very overgrown but at least we saw some trail markers, although some of them were faded.

We definitely got a lot of adventure—more than we thought we would and enjoyed ourselves greatly! It was a challenge with the trail being unkept but fun.

There is a lot of trash leading up to the pot rocks so if you are only going to the pot rocks bring a trash bag to take some with you.

I would definitely go again, even with the trail being the way it is.
