Section 4 Lake

Shingle Mill Pathway

A return visit to the Shingle Mill Pathway after my aborted winter overnight a couple months back. I had been positively aching to get back out to the Shingle Mill ever since. Originally my plan was to do the entire 11-mile loop but detours and rough roads forced me to only do the northernmost 6-miles. No matter, the northern half holds the majority of the scenic highlights anyway. Off I went for a little springtime hiking...

    Not a big deal, but it's Section 4 Lake, not 14.
