Comments:

I came today to knock the remainder of the trails at McKinney Roughs that I'd not done during my previous trips.  I think now I have all of them.  Track file for this log will include only what I did today.

The overcast skys might have prompted some folks to stay home, so there were not too many people on the trails.  More horseback riders than hikers.  Also note, that the main visitor center is closed on Sundays, so if you want to visit you have to start off from either the Hwy. 71 or Pope Bend Rd. trailheads.
