Little Pine Day Hike

Scoop and I took an easy day-hike along Limbaugh Road, which begins at Little Pine Campground.  After finishing that hike, we explored the area around Little Pine State Park. Low humidity and no rain showers created a perfect hiking day.

We hiked up the mountain on Limbaugh Road which follows English Run.

English Run, a beautiful area!

After hiking up then down Limbaugh Road, we ate a late lunch at an empty campsite...in the shade along the run.

We saw a lot of wild strawberries. Scoop ate one but said it had no taste.

The Button Ball Trail runs along Little Pine Creek.  Here the sun is shining just right for a perfect water reflection of a fallen tree

Although many of this tree's roots were exposed, it managed to stand perfectly upright on the steep bank.

After completing the Button Ball Trail, we hiked along the top of the dam. This look over the dam's lake toward the swimming, canoeing and kayaking area.
