Foothills Spur: Caesars Head to Sassafras Mountain (14.2 miles)
The first day my friend Still Waters drove me to Caesars Head State Park. The Foothills Spur shares tread here with the Raven Cliff Falls Trail and the Gum Gap Trail, which had been closed when we'd visited the park a few weeks ago.
|Starting out in fog on gentle trail.|
|Warning sign say to stay on blazed trails to avoid getting lost.|
|Not very rare, but still pretty yellow fringed orchid at Watson-Cooper Heritage Preserve|
|Rocky expanse on Bursted Rock Mountain.|
|View from Bursted Rock (though the geological marker said "Bursting Rock").|
|Looking north from Dolves Mountain.|
|Big steps up.|
|Watching the sunset from Sassafras Mountain.|
Stay tuned for Part 2...
