PKR Fall 2009

Went up to Pilot Know ridge today on a beautiful fall day. I was fortunate in that the day before it rained all day so the water fall was full and running free.

Now I went up to place more markers on the orange trail as I have had reports of people loosing the trail with all the leaves down. One thing that I would like to point out, and for you to look for when you hike at the PKR. When you see a double maker, that means there is a turn or bend in the trail and you need to look ahead and see the next trail maker. This is important for the next couple of weeks as the last of the leaves are falling as there are section of the orange trail that become hard to see.

The preserve was really beautiful today and it looked like there where a few people enjoying the wonderful fall weather.

Fall Foiliage 2009

I think that although the leaves are falling, there are some still left and a hike up the PKR would be a nice way to experience it. Also, for the next few weeks before the snow gets deep, the PKR offers a nice place to go and enjoy the fall woods. It is fun watching the squirrels scurrying around hiding their acorns.

One note, while hunting is not permitted on the PKR, still wear red or orange and do not wear brown or white anywhere. In the past two years I have only seen one hunter on the PKR and he was passing through to a location off PKR property and his gun was unloaded and the breech opened. Still use caution this time of year.

Fall Foliage

For the next two weeks Pilot Knob Ridge will be a great place to view Lake George at the height of its fall foliage glory. The trails are in great shape and the trails have been remarked.

Go and hike the PKR and more.
