Kathy, Glenn, and I made a day at Grist. We grilled burgers, fished, kayaked, and I hiked a little starting at the trailhead by the lower picnic pavilion.
They have added to the trails here! Section turned roughly eastward in bottom-land and wound across a ridge-line. Wide trail, largely cleared - much better maintained than last time I hike here. Trail blaze is a white horizontal band. I was pressed for time during my hike as the park closes at 7pm and I did not realize they had added more trails. These trails will require more exploration. Note to self to always take SPoT with me (even on hikes I think I know well) and a map. I did have compass and emerg kit.
