Route: Old Carriage Road, Mt. Prospect Auto Road, Davidge Path, Around The Mountain Trail

Trails were mostly dry. Slight bit of mud on Old Carriage Road. Observation tower was locked up by the time I reached the summit (5ish), but there are still plenty of views from the ground.

Davidge Path may be a sick joke aimed at those who are redlining - an overgrown .2 mile mess.

Fall foliage colors popping up along US 3 in the area.
