Hilton Falls

For the first time in far too long, I stopped for a short hike on my way home from work at Hilton Falls. I was surprised at how much more foresty it has become since I've last been there. The trees are mostly fairly young, with a few older trees intersperse and the vegetation is different from what I recognize. I did identify poison ivy, which I've seen lots of this summer and flowering raspberry and indian pipe.

There were few other people there (around 6 pm) and the sun was setting a bit. I was surprised at the mosquitos - but then it served me right hiking about in a pair of sandels.

They've added 3 bicycle trails to their original 3 trail/ski routes as well as generous parts of the bruce trail running through the park. I'll have to go back and explore it more thoroughly when I have more time and better shoes.
