There were "no trespassing' signs but we decided to proceed anyway. ( we later talked to some people we met on the trail and they said they thought the signs were directed at hunters) . When we came to a fork we took the left with the idea of returning for the right later
Off to the left as we climb
The top is open ledges with very nice views.
A little exploring revealed a trail that seemed to head down but we did not know where it went so returned the way we had come to the fork mentioned previously. ( there is some flagging but no signs on any kind on the trails)
Back at the fork we took the other trail and met some nice people who told us about the trespassing signs. They had gone up the same way we had but took the trail down that we had seen and said it made a loop.
As we climbed a bit we got closer to the base of the bluff.
There were also side trails that led to the actual face with nowhere to go but up
More pictures of the face and trails
This trail had some harder places for Kelley and we eventually reached a spot she could not get over and we turned back.
This trail had no water for Kelley to get into ( I carry drinking water) so we went to nearby Fitts Pond so she could have a swim.
After a swim we walked a part of the trail that circles the pond
We stopped here for lunch and then turned back
Yesterday was rainy but today was beautiful- upper 50's and sun- shirt sleeve hiking again. The bluff hike took us 1 3/4 hours and the pond only 3/4 of an hour.
