Marsh Mountain Trail

Took a nice hike around Marsh Mountain on the trail this week. Trail is a bit hard to get to, for the short loop, but well worth it. In recent years the old trailhead road and parking lot has been taken out of service
and the trail is accessed from the Castle, great for bicycle enthusiasts, but too long for a senior citizen hike. We instead parked just of the main road, Skyline Drive, and walked the third of a mile or so in to the old trailhead and then circled the mountain.

I had forgotten how wonderful the views were on this walk. Took us about an hour and a half including the walk to and back from the trailhead. Well worth it!
