7 – Osgood Trail

Emily and Gretchen and I continued our progress on the Allegany 18 by hiking the Osgood Trail today.

Trail Head Sign

The loop is fairly steep on the way up and more gradual on the way down – if you take it counter-clockwise, which we did. We passed several other groups that chose to do it the other way around. My knees prefer to do the steep part going up!

Emily and I – proof that we hiked trail #7.

There is no vista at the summit, but that didn’t make it any the less stunning up there.

The light coming through the canopy at the summit was beautiful.

On the way way down, we came upon several groups of large rocks.

There are some awesome rocks along the way! (I’m not sure how this photo came out so green. Hmm….)

There were also some very large, old trees.

This picture does not do justice to how large the trees were.

 

Here is our Hike: (I forgot to turn my GPS on until we had climbed a bit of the first part of the trail. Ooops.
