Wonderful hike in the evening
Friedrich Wilderness Park - 4/19/2009  [View Log Page]
Rating: 2stars Difficulty: 2stars Solitude: 5stars
Distance: 2.70 Miles Duration: 55 minutes

It was a last minute decision to go on this hike and I was racing the sun to get back to my truck before dusk.  Since I had not been on these trails before, I had to rely on the signs and my view of the map online.  There weren't any brochures and the signs are faded.  The trails are extremely well-kept, but I opted out of the Fern Del loop because of the darkness.  I will have to go again to try and catch it since it is supposed to be the most difficult part of this trail.  Saw a few people, at the beginning of my hike but had absolute wonderful solitude for the majority of my hike.

Have to do this one again.

Great undeveloped cavern

Short hike, not very difficult.  Exciting to see undeveloped nature.  No solitude, it is a guided tour.  Since they only host groups for camping, the tours are full.

Beautiful hike

We went off the official trail, where countless others had gone before and just followed the river.  The river was low and the falls were less than spectacular, but it was still serene, beautiful and peaceful.  At the trammel crossing we ran across other hiker otherwise the solitude was great!
