Elk River Trail West

October 26, 2013

Elk River (click image for slideshow)

Wendy and I ventured along the Pathfinder Parkway today to locate the plank I bought for the pedestrian bridge over the Caney River. Then we drove an hour north to hike 5 miles round-trip from the west end of the Elk River Trail.

Wendy posed by one of the rock formations to give it scale, and we enjoyed trekking past the various rock walls and above and below the north bluff. A boat passed by along the river and there were some early autumn colors on display. I’m looking forward to more autumn colors on forthcoming hikes.

    Thank you for your detailed accounts of hikes, I have been able to follow in your footsteps on many a hike! I’m wondering what kind of GPS you carry or if you carry one at all. I think I need to invest in a hiking GPS and wonder if you could reccommend one.

    Thanks,

    Lisa
