Late Autumn Hike Swayback Bridge TOLA
Hike: Swayback Bridge Trail of Legends, Sat. 12/1/2012, 08:45-10:30CST
Distance: 4 miles Rating: 4.5/5
Conditions: Bright, clear blue sky. Calm. Upper 60s. Trails dry and in excellent shape.
Great hike. A few mountain bikers and trail runners on the trails. Enjoyed the passerines, gray squirrels, and chipmunks - several stopped and watched me watching them!
My steps were cushioned by a deep carpet of brown and gray leaves. Most of the leaves are down now. The view into the forest is much deeper than during the spring or summer. I should have brought binoculars.
