She had been to this place before and it turned out to be extra helpful since I did not know where the trail starts. I went past it, her telling me she thought we had passed where the trail starts. I said I wanted to be sure by going on up a little. It was silly but I'm glad that I did anyway. We found this interesting rock outcrop and cascade along the creek. The area has copious amounts of limestone.
The water was too cold to wade, but it was pleasant with the sun coming out warming the air.
The creek was fringed with multi-colored pebbles and stones.
After that little detour we went back to the trailhead. The trail begins by crossing a creek.
I didn't know what the stone pillars were for until a few hundred yards into the woods. There was the faint outline of a foundation and a sign describing the first Boy Scout Camp in this part of Virginia on this rather large, flat creek bottom.
Only a little way into the woods was there a sign revealing the destinations.
