This was a scouting trip. Turned out to be a fun short hike. I wanted to find out some things:

1. Would the Buzzmobile, (a 1994 Honda Accord) make it to the trailhead gate?

Answer: Yes!

2. Could I even find the place?

Answer: Yes, but it was a pain in the butt to find Rowe Well Road! You have to go around behind Maswik and down Laundry Road (I am not kidding here!) and take a left on Kennel Road (yes, really!) which becomes Rowe Well Road. Apparently the powers that be in the Park are more concerned with pleasing the concessionaires, rather than keeping the old historic names of roads. Why am I not surprised? Rowe Well Road is what it is on the map, but Maswik likes Kennel Road better, I guess.

3. How are my feet doing?

Answer: By now most of you are tired of my feet. Well, so am I, so that makes a bunch of us. My left foot did burn a little toward the end of the hike. But it wasn't onerous. I will just have to slowly build the miles back up again.

Oh! The hike! Very dry, but some nice cliff roses. Horsethief Tank dry (no surprise there.) It's a nice hike. I want to do the whole thing sometime, after summer's heat has abated a bit.
