While checking out another hiking place we came to the conclusion that that part of the State Park is not taken care well at all. See yourself. We parked at the public parking lot and went straight to the information table to introduce a new route to ourselves. This is what we saw:
Since there was only one road leading forward and no any other paths, we decided to follow it. When the road turned into completely covered with ice disaster we took a right turn and started climb up. We climbed up pretty high.
This is our turn,
and this is an icy road we tried to avoid
We followed that road till we found the fallen tree on our way that we successfully went around and it appeared to be the top of the hill.
Still no signs, so I can't tell you what elevation it was, what is the name of the hill, but we stubbornly followed the road
till we found some signs of previous human being presence, like old pieces of a broken building, some metal pieces, etc...
The place felt uneasy, unhealthy and creepy. The gloomy weather didn't help either. In a word, that place felt dead, and I just refused to go further, and the curiosity brought my husband to the ruins of an old building
If you look to the left side - there is a forest,
if you look to the rite side - there is a forest
At that moment I felt that we were so careless and negligent to ourselves: not knowing where we were, no water with us, no knife, no nothing, only a cell phone without reception...
The way back was much faster... 6 miles of walking and no fun today...
I am thinking SUMMER...
But it was not the end of a day. Absolutely not satisfied with that walk we went to a new place and did a fast but very steep 2 miles up and 2 miles down climb.
That was a workout, I must tell you! and such a fabulous view!
I am thinking SUMMER more...
