Love Valley Trail

15 Completed 1 Reviews

The first time I did this hike with my husband, we went left at the fork in the trail. After a while, the trail disappeared and we were under the impression it was a loop so we hiked across the open field until we reached a barb-wire fence. Certain parts along the fence were worn down, so I'm still not sure if we were on a trail or not. It was confusing but we never felt lost because the field was wide open and the barn in the distance was a good landmark. We explored the barn, which was really cool on the outside, but kinda nasty inside because there is a lot of plastic debris inside. There were holes in the walls from shotgun shells and I noticed a lot of bullet casings along the trail. The second time we hiked we brought a blanket and had a picnic under a tree overlooking the lake. Then we headed back towards the fork and kept going until we reached the barn. Walking along the road, there was a small path which led into the forest and back up to where we parked. It was really beautiful and we will definitely go there again.

East Fork Trail (Bridge to Nowhere)

This trail was a true nature hike! It was hot, it was windy, and it was just right! I really enjoyed the fact that the trail had so much variety! jumping across the stream a few times, climbing on big boulders, bridges, stairs, rock stairs, grass trail, rock trails, and if you go the wrong way, you may end up climbing along side a wall, haha! I went beyond the Bridge to Nowhere and kept along the stream for a good mile, until I had no idea where to go, so I turned back, lol. The trail took me 4hrs to complete and it was very beautiful! I thank God for the beauty!!

Devil's Punchbowl / Devil's Chair

I love this trail! I was able to walk and run it in 2hrs! Yes, the hardest part is the one mile or so after you leave Devils Chair. I like that the trail ran right along the mountain, so that you could have a beautiful scene the whole way through. It was one of the best clearly marked trails I have been on! The day was perfect! I am sad that I did not see the water though! I am not sure if it was there or dried up this time around. I hope to one day see it! I thank God for such beauty!!

Didn't get to do the whole 6.8 miles. We just kind of went on the spur of the moment. Will definitely go back and finish. Great hike and great scenery.

Pear Lake Trail

This is a fantastic overnighter if you're looking to do a strenuous one night stay or establish a base to do some wilderness exploring. The campsites are fairly spread out and the animals aren't too daring. The lake was great for Swimming, and the evening was serene.

Great hike. Rather difficult with a full pack on. This area is very scenic, but keep going for even better.
