I drove into the parking lot at the rec area and was a little worried. It was 9:30 and no one else was there. The grass had not been cut in a long time. The fields also had not been used. I found the path and decided to give it a go anyway. There was a decent amount of deadfall and growth in the trail. For the most part is was good, but I did lose the trail 3 times during mile 2. Probably just me. I also was not successful finding the junction to the white trail to the overlook. So, I will probably go back next Saturday and see if I have any better luck being more familiar with where I'm supposed to go. Do know that the "carcass of the old bridge" is an apt description.
