The last few km to the parking is a gravel road. It is a small parking lot but not busy in early October on a rain day.
This is the only such facility seen in this track, a single unit located about 50 meters above the parking lot
Lower trails, over the first 2 or three kilometers are broad and easy walking; no root or rock obstacles until higher up.

first views to north
An opening along the ridge affords views over farmland towards the north. Cloud covered on the day.
Siltstone outcrops in and beside the trail
The forest changes with shorter trees and more deciduous type, maples, the autumn colours are at their peak in ealy-October 2018.
relics of an older trail
It appears that different branches have been active over the years, and as new ones become favoured the older ones grow over and disappear into the forest floor.
The steepness increases from here
openings with south views
Forest thinning a bit and trees become stunted below the tree line. Views towards south.
On ridge line in clouds
Still just below tree line; attained a rocky outcrop on the ridge, however heavier rain starts so turned back here. There would surely be wonderful views at this location on a clear day. final muddy section before top on ridge line
