We got a late start, so decided to tackle what we thought was a 2.4 mile loop, based on the information in the Allegany 18 packet. Odd that the trailhead sign says it’s 4 miles. My GPS says we hiked 3.9 miles. With this hike under our belts, we are half way through the Allegany 18 challenge!
It was a hot day after some days of rain, so there were lots of ‘shrooms! Indian Pipes were also up in several places, some starting to turn their heads upward to form the seed pods. Lost count of Red Efts. Gypsy moths laying eggs. Pretty pink Smartweed in the open areas.
