Concerned about a nuclear imaging test of my heart I was to have Monday morning I wanted a nice restful “walk in the woods” hike and this trail has always been my go to place when I am in that mood. But things have changed since I last hiked this trail. This trail has been well maintained and the many stream crossings gave a little challenge but very do able. This winter has hammered this trail with about 25 down trees across the trail. A few as large a three feet across and couple root balls standing 15 feet tall. A couple of creeks were also running higher than normal with the last one high enough to turn me around before reach Cedar Swamp. So not the day I had hoped for.
