Trip Report

The weather cooperated for the most part and we had a good hike along a scenic trail.  Just a couple of brief, light showers.  The trail was pretty muddy in places, but rocks, roots and chunks of timber were usually available to serve as stepping stones.  We stopped by group consensus around noon for lunch somewhere short of the trail terminus, then headed back past the waterfalls to the trailhead.  There were 10 members and 1 guest on this hike.  We hope to see you again, Omar!  A pic of the best waterfall follows.
