Photos of Lower Chanceford Trails

Otter Creek is a favorite hiking destination. However, the flooding from late August this year was absolutely devastating. The flood waters carried houses away and the creek is now filled with debris - including parts of houses, automobiles, fridges, etc. The damage to the trees along the shore was dramatic. The section of trail the goes right along the river was completely re-shaped and washed out dozens of hemlocks - some sections under Urey are closed. I recommend not hiking there until 2019 when some clean-up has been done.
