Comments:

My husband and I took the Wolf Mountain Trail on a Friday morning.  We only saw one other couple until we were leaving, when we met a youth group hiking in with camping gear.  I was somewhat disappointed with this trail.  As someone else mentioned, most of the trail is actually like a road.  Turns out walking on crushed gravel is harder on the feet and legs than we thought.  Ouch.  

We took the jaunt up to Jones Spring which was interesting- it was neat to see the ruins of the structure, but we wished there had been a marker with some kind of info.  We stopped on Wolf Mountain for lunch.  It was extremely quiet.

It had not rained in quite some time so all of the creeks and even the spring were mostly dry.

We did see a small snake trying to eat a much larger frog- that made a terribly disturbing sound.  And, off the trail but still noteworthy- we saw another snake sunbathing on the rocks where you can walk out onto the rocks in the river.

I think we will try this train again in the spring after there has been some rain.
