Burnt Bridge Creek Trail Hike East from Stewart Glen

Hike Distance: 4.6 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 91.6 miles

Elevation Gain: 465 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 10581 feet

My subaru had trouble starting up, so I had to get the battery and charging system checked out.  This led to me getting a late start, and I had to stay close to home.

It rained hard during the entire hike!  I mean, it never let up.  Thankfully, my rain gear held up fairly well, and my clothing was only a bit damp at the end of the hike.

I basically hiked from the Stewart Glen TH to Hazel Dell Avenue.  I also hiked all of the side trails between these points, which added about another 1.5 miles.

The highlight of the hike was following a trail that paralleled Burnt Bridge Creek.  The creek was rather high, and another big rain would certainly cause it to rise above the banks, and flood the surrounding plains.  I also noticed that a huge amount of work is being put into restoring the vegetation around the banks of the creek.  There were plenty of new saplings and some markers for future plantings.  In addition, there must be a beaver in the area, as several of the small trees had been chewed down!

Certainly a very wet day, and more people than I expected, but plenty of fresh air and beauty!
