We hiked over 2 miles through what we thought was Mountain Laurel trail then the Rock Garden Trail. It started out from near the back of the campsite but turned out to be an abandoned trail that put us out at the tower (highest point). So from the campgrounds to there was a rise of about 300 feet then down 300 feet to the restaurant and hotel. From there back along the road to the beginning of Rock Garden trail. Then back across the road past the old water cistern and then the campground. Exhausting but fun and interesting. Total of over 2 miles in just under 2 hours.
I think we have covered all the trails we wanted to hike. This evening we went go back to the patio behind the restaurant and see the sunset.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
