Mid-40's and sunny. Went to this area as there several alternative hikes in the area and we wanted one without ice. It is a relatively new trail and there is not yet a map.
There was water - 5 minutes into the hike
But no ice and only a couple of small patches of snow that were not on the trail.
A stream on Goose Ridge Trail
Lots more water on this trail - contrasty light gave me problems
but the trail was clear of ice and snow
Heading back on Goose Ridge there was a barrier that required a large bushwhack for Kelley to get around.
Near the end - the same pool as the start
Turned out to be a pretty good hike. The trail goes up and down hills so we got a little workout. Kelley had to work around some of the water crossings - the trail is not worn down like an older trail would be - I had to be more aware of where I was stepping. Kelley seemed to enjoy it anyway and did well. 1 3/4 hours
