    1 May 2010: The sign along the river trail at the junction with Ferry springs is missing, though the trail intersection beyond Ferry Springs Creek is obvious. We continued up the river trail to where the trail traverses up the hillside. Where the trail starts descending back to the river, there’s a faint tread heading straight up to a overhanging rim, and then up thru a notch to a bench at the South boundary of the State Park with lovely views up & down the river. The old RR grade bike trail is right there and obvious, though we missed the trail going up to Ferry Springs and just walked the RR grade back to the TH.

    Glad you had a good time Chief. Did you bring my book with you while you hiked?

    Went to the park this past weekend (4/7/12)… most signs are missing on the trail. It wasn’t super obvious how to follow what trail, but we made our way and had a good time being outdoors!

    Thanks for the suggestion in the book!
