Piney Creek Trail

There’s my destination in sight. Straight ahead across the lake. The lake was pretty full, and before I went on, I back-tracked a ways up Piney Creek and found a nice clear feeder creek (dribble really), to fill up my water bottle and a half-gallon pouch to last me for the night.

Gary on the trail (when he can find it) – The Piney Creek Trail is well known for getting overgrown, especially where it crosses ‘Cat Briar Meadows.’ As soon as spring is sprung, nature goes wild and starts encroaching on the trail. Oh, and I got wet. One-minute read. 3 pictures

Cat Briar Meadows – Cat briars are taking over this area, and climbing the trees as well. I suspect the only thing keeping the trail open here is the horses. 2 pictures

Piney Creek Trail – This trail can get a little ‘brushy’. In the summer it is almost impassable. For added fun there are lots of cat briars to get scratched by and snagged on.

First Creek Crossing of the Day – The trail I was following down to the creek joined just a few yards before this crossing point.
