The eroded Gorge Brook Trail
The eroded Gorge Brook Trail

Route: Gorge Brook Trail, Carriage Road, Snapper Trail

Started before 7, but still encountered quite a few hikers this morning. Trails were generally dry with some mud and running water in the usual places. Lots of white flowers of various types in bloom up high. Sad to see the continued erosion, but good to see some new steps and waterbars being constructed on the Carriage Road. Temperatures weren't too bad for the ascent, though it looks to be another scorcher today.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 112 West to Route 118 south/west. Ravine Road will be on the right shortly after the height of land. Go down this dirt road and bear right. Limited parking available on the side of the road. Walk straight ahead past the kiosk, then take the first left, go left again, then go right across the bridge. The Gorge Brook Trail starts on the left thereafter.
