Journal entry by Don McMahon

A good day and a closer-to-home, easier event - six attendees - Nancy, Linda P, Dorie, Scott, Bonnie and Don. The several old trails have been completely eliminated and replaced by a new, easy-to-follow new trail that makes many south to north traverses and has a lot of new stone steps over the lower part of the trail. The trail starts at the same place and ends just north of the Gazebo, on one of the old trails. You can often see where the old trails diverged, but now covered by many laid down branches. The hike between the Gazebo and the waterfalls is unchanged. There was a moderate flow of water over the falls and we had lunch, as usual, at the brook below the falls. A very comfortable day for hiking.
