This is maybe your favorite spot there, isn’t it? Since I love the color of fall and the crisp cold of winter you can imagine that this is probably my favorite take on the trail to date.
This is just past the entrance I use, walking slightly downhill. People often ask why the trail is “raised.” Answer: The trails are dikes used in the late 1800s and early 1900s to prevent oil tanks from leaking into the nearby river. This forest has an extensive oil extraction history.
Aha. I had wondered about that, too.
