When the Adventurers last hiked Thornewood last fall, the creek that runs through the property was completely dry. Not so this morning, and that made for one very happy Maggie dog.
The trail from Old La Honda Road up the Bridal Path to Lake Schilling still had some very muddy spots, enough for them to remark that it they’d done this hike just a week earlier, it would have been very boggy.
Today as they hiked next to Dennis Martin Creek they could hear the the sounds of water all along the way. That made for one very happy Maggie dog who got numerous dips.
Today’s adventure included a hike up a trail that they’d not been on before and maybe a way to get to Alice’s Restaurant on Skyline, according to a local who was walking with his dog. He also pointed them to one of the decaying fountains that had been part of August Schilling’s many additions to the property.
Hiking down they spotted a heart, something that they’d not seen on the way up. The Mag and D were good enough to poise inside it…
Hike/moderate (some good pulls on the way up)/3.35 miles
