Laurel Falls - CT
Lora and I did a day hike to Laurel Falls. We headed to Dayton after church and went to the Laurel Snow Pocket Wilderness trailhead. There were probably 35 cars at the trailhead so it was a popular day to hike. There were rock climbers and hikers out. We hiked up Richland Creek and over the Laurel Creek bridge. The creeks were up and the water falls were looking good. We did Laurel falls and then climbed up to the top of the bluff. We got to do an old fashion foot washing in Laurel creek on the way to Bryan Overlook. There were actually other hikers crazy enough to do the same. On the way back to the trailhead we did some trail maintenance trying to cover up and block all the shortcuts that people have to make. What is wrong with following the trail?
