Heading north on the Bradley Farm Trail around 11 a.m. on Oct. 9, the way was foggy, following a night of rain. It would
later clear up into a beautiful partly cloudy day in the low 70s.
At just one spot on the Northrup Trail, one can see Rounds Rock through the trees to the Northeast.
Beautiful fall colors on Rounds Rock. From here it is just a short hike east to cross Rockwell Road and pick up the Woodason
Spring Trail south 3 mi. back to the Visitors Center.
Jones Nose, 4 miles north of the Visitors Center. On Oct. 9 it took me about 2:30 to hike to here. Then I enjoyed
lunch on what had turned out to be a beautiful afternoon.
Here is the sign, southeast of the Jones Nose parking lot, where the Woodason Spring Trail heads south, 4 miles from
the Visitors Center. The hike back takes about as long as the hike up on the Northrup Trail.
I was struck by these flourishing mushrooms on the lower Woodason Spring Trail on my Oct. 4 hike.
