Looking up the Holts Ledge Trail
Route: Holts Ledge Trail
For the third hike of the day, I crossed the street and headed up to Holts Ledge. The low point in the trail was a little bit flooded due to beaver dams and required some fancy footwork to keep my feet dry.
The trail was generally pretty moderate with decent footing in places. Maybe 15 minutes after passing by a nice viewpoint, I reached the wooded ledge highpoint of Holts Ledge. Continuing north, I soon reached excellent cliff viewpoints - very nice views, though the best one was closed due to peregrine falcons.
Returning to the highpoint, I bushwhacked east to a cliff viewpoint that looked south and east.
