Experimental music, photography, and adventures

Another trip to Beltzville State Park

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

I have once again fallen way behind in posting about things. It’s a bit frustrating, but it’s a good feeling having more adventures than time to post about them.

The day after I rode on roads that weren’t really roads, Sarah and I found ourselves at Beltzville State Park, hiking a trail that wasn’t really a trail. We set out to hike the Trinity Gorge Trail, but found that it was mostly fire roads with a lot of debris, and part of it was a hike straight across a field. There was a brief section of very cool, narrow trail, but we think that must have been a different trail.

While the “trail” wasn’t quite what we’d hoped, the scenery was very beautiful. It was a great day to be out hiking, and a side effect of the weird non-trailishness of the hike was that the scenery was stunning nearly the entire time.

I’m not going to write much more about it, but I feel I should mention that the road down to the trail is terrible. It’s a steep, rocky gravel road, and on our way back up when we left, we heard/felt the undercarriage of our car drag several times. I suggest driving a vehicle with plenty of clearance — such as a bicycle!
