East Fork State Park Steve Newman Perimeter Trail

oh

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 28.5 miles


Repeat of trip taken last year, except went counter clockwise and added the first part of the backpacker trail.

East Fork Trip Nov 9-12, 2009  35 – 67 degrees.
35 Miles, 53 Hours
General Guidelines
*Prior to hike – spend $2 on arial map of East Fork trails, each much better than the general overview map.
*Fall night hiking -  I would not hike at night during the fall unless the path is well defined, depending on the amount of leaves you may not even be able to see the path which leaves you with only the trail markers which can become difficult to find at night.
*Streams – Most of the streams seem to be dry in the fall or easily passable. Note, all trails pick up opposite the entrance. Make sure you look for a path or marking just opposite before crossing. Be careful not to follow side stream paths.
*Miles 6 – 32, not as nice a backpacker trail but still good trails. You’ll need to get used to some of the steep inclines. Not as many switchbacks as you would like.
*Miles 12 - 30 are destroyed by horses. There seemed to be a lot of water pockets this year the horses just destroyed the trail.
