Been wanting to check out this trail too, which is located in Marion. I wasn't planning on doing the whole thing but I wanted to hike as far as a rock outcropping which the trail guides all say is pretty cool to see cause it's just this giant rock in the middle of the woods with few others around.
Like I said, I'm a sucker for boardwalk-type trails.
Looks like an alien face in the reflection
Or a skull. Or a ghost.
Russell took his time while I went ahead. I'm a fast walker. Comes from years of living, working and vacationing in cities.
I ended up going far ahead of him and would just meet up with him on my way back.
When I saw 'rock slab bridge' on the trail map, I wasn't expecting something this small and unimpressive.
I knew I was very close to this rock outcropping....and I came upon this. Multiple huge trees across the trail. Under most circumstances I would have clambered over them and continued on, but as we had a rather ambitious trip coming up and the last thing I needed was to twist an ankle, fall and wreck myself. I had no choice but to turn back. I'll have to try again next spring.
I probably did about 2 miles round trip and it was a very quiet and peaceful walk.
