Fall Creek Trail
October 21, 1990
Six motley folk showed up at 9:00 at the S.E.H.S. parking lot in a light rain.
We decided to “go for it,” hoping the rain would let up.
We were at the far end of the Fall Creek Trail by 10:15 (with the other car 5 miles down).
It rained steadily and harder, but off we went.
Fairly dense trees provided some protection.
The footing was still good and the trail offers almost continuous views of the creek plus lush forest.
We finished this upper stretch shortly after noon, all packed into the shuttle car back up to
the trailhead and lunched in the cars (more steady rain).
Though we had enjoyed the hike, we decided not to do more and returned home.
In nicer weather the entire 14-mile trail would be a pleasant challenge (with a shuttle).
The rained-on hikers were non-member Victoria Winarski and members Gary Marx, Mary Millman,
Virginia Prouty, Ann and (Leader) Ed Lichtenstein.
