The park used to be a farm
ripples on Little Fishing Creek
ruins along the Dam Site Trail
going over the dam
another Dam Site further up the trail
Mountain Laurel tunnel on the climb up Medoc
new growth budding
view from near the summit
one of the old markers near the top
there are several of these but no engravings so I assume they were put as markers or decoration originally. Vandals have broken all but one
looking down the steep"shortcut" to the summit
near the top
view looking back from the summit
view looking the other way from the summit
old gravel road from the summit
little dip in the trail along the creek
bridge that connects the two sides of the park
typical roots. smaller creek draining into Little Fishing Creek
ripples in the Creek
the creek divides here and goes around this island
looking downstream to the confluence past the island
heading up the bluffs
bridge over a ravine
before the bridge the trail went in and out of the ravine and crossed the small bridge underneath
Bluff Trail. One of my favorites and certainly the best section in this park to me.
view upstream from the bluffs
view downstream from the bluffs
another view downstream. prettiest spot in the park, really nice in the Fall
Frank Lilley hauled in all the lumber on his back and built these steps with his bare hands and a Swiss Army Knife.
Old tie steps are visible to the side before new steps were built
ripples at the bottom of the steps
i didn't trip over the stob in the bottom of the picture this time. go left !
went right last time and this was the result. still have a nice little scar from this one.
