Its a twisty, sometimes hilly trail that crosses several small brooks. Here my knapsack is taking a short break by the brook.
And me......by a brook. Why must I always pull my hat down over my eyes!!!
The second part of the trail comes out behind the Tablelands. Its so beautiful with the rolling hills.
And always the amazing view of Trout River Pond.
The Tableland Mountains can look quite barren at first glance. But there are actually some very beautiful flowers. If you look carefully amont the rocks you can find Round Leaved Sundew, an insectiverous plant with sticky, hairy leaves that attract insects.
I think this is Mountain Saxifrage.
And there are clusters of deceptively frail looking Harebells.
This is a 14 km hike, 7 in and 7 out and worth every step.
