I know we had some bad weather come through and the trail has not been cleaned up yet. We understand that completely. however, a word of caution, we walked a little over 5 miles yesterday and found no less than 40 ticks on our 3 dogs, 2 on myself. Having had RMSF and lived, I try not to be paranoid about ticks but I will not be heading back out there till winter at a minimum. Another word of caution is the poison ivy and oak that lines both sides of the trail for miles. There is literally no escape right now. Thankful we were wise enough to wear hiking pants. Great trail for most levels just these two things that need to be considered mid-summer.
